You must enter the numbers from the key pad to the right of the Enter key. The numbers across the top of the keyboard won't work.

I believe the list Victor posted (and the bottom half of bperry921's list) are the old ASCII character sets. 

The first ones from bperry921 that are of the Alt + 0123 format are the only ones I can get to work in modern Windows applications.  Those are ANSI codes.


Here is a chart comparing ANSI and ASCII codes:
