Hi and welcome to SU. Have you tried any of the solutions suggested in these google results? –  terdon Jul 7 '13 at 15:32

  1. Just type in \underbrace;
  2. Type in "space" (this should turn the \underbrace into a proper underbrace);
  3. Type in the first character of the expression and "space" again (this should put this character just over the underbrace);
  4. Press the left arrow key on your keyboard and then continue typing the rest of the expression.

@Momoli Did you type this in the equation box after clicking "Insert Equation"? –  Jerry Jul 7 '13 at 16:05
    
Wow ! I have managed to get it .... Thanks very much Jerry ! –  Momoli Jul 7 '13 at 17:00
    
@Momoli You're welcome :) –  Jerry Jul 7 '13 at 17:01

Use the Equation Editor. In Word 2010, click Insert, then Equation. You'll see all the equation tools.

enter image description here To enter an underbrace type "\underbrace", space, the character to go over the underbrace, space, then continue.

Word Help has full details - search for "Equation Editor"
