I'd check INSERT>SYMBOL and see what you can find there. Depending on how it was installed, you may have quite a few different options available to you. You can also use the "pipe" key, which is typically located above the \ key on most keyboards. It shows up like | .

word|word

My keyboard has that as the uppercase option on the \ key, above the enter bar.
