Hi Gail,
There's always the "Type> glyphs" path. The Calibri family has a large amount of glyphs including 3 and 4 that are stylized in the way you need it to be to make 3/4. In other words you have to do it by hand. For some font families the whole fraction can be a glyph option so that's handy, but not for Calibri.
But Character>Open Type> Fraction is a lot faster!

In InDesign, highlight the fraction you want to convert to an expert fraction. In your Character palette, go to the down arrow in the upper right of the palette. Hold that down and go to "Open Type." Under "Open Type" select "Fractions."

That's it :-)

    checked and unchecked, tried GREP styles, etc etc. nada.
