How do I put subscripts in an equation?

How do I put subscripts after variables in my equations? It is grayed out on
the toolbar.

Thanks,

Hi Mark,

What version of Word, and if Word 2007 are you using the Word Equation Editor on the ribbon, or the older MS Office Equation Editor?

What is the equation you're trying to create?

Hi Bob,

I've got Word 2007 and am creating the equation using the equation button on
the Insert tab. One formula I tried to create is the turns ratio for a
transformer (NsubS/Nsubp = EsubS/EsubP).

Hi Mark,

In your equation control try typing
N_s/N_p=E_s/E_p

where the Underscore character should subscript the character(s) that follow until you type an operator, punctuation or a space.
