It occors to me that perhaps you meant above vertically, rather than
on top of, the way I first read it. In that case, your solution is to
use the EQ field code. The syntax for a line over text is EQ \x \to
(your text). Go to Insert|Field, and type that in the blank box.

You don't have much control over formatting, though.
