How to rotate text

Hello,

I need to rotate some text vertically on an Access report.
Is that something difficult to do?
Any pointers appreciated.

What version.
If your version supports it, you can set a control's Vertical property
to yes. It's on the Other tab. You'll need to resize the control. Then
set the last 5 items on the Format tab (control margins and line
spacing) if/as needed.

If you need more, see:

Fred I've had some major problems in Access 2002 with the Vertical property.

Hi Stephen

Thanks for giving us something to replace it with :)

More info: The strange thing is that this worked fine in Access 2K. Also, it
appears to affect only some machines at random, (all running Windows XP
which may or may not be coincidence), We have two machines that were orderd
from Dell pre-configured with WinXP - one works and the other doesn't! Gio
figure.

I would like to rotate text and draw it starting from certain location, say (10, 20). The problem for me is that it does rotate, but it never draws the text from (10, 20). Will you please tell me where I am wrong? double trangent = Math.Atan2(ptTo.Y - ptFrom.Y, ptTo.X - ptFrom.X); float angle = (float)(trangent * (180/Math.PI)); SizeF stringSize = e.Graphics.MeasureString(Text, this.Font); float midX = (ptTo.Y + ptFrom.Y) / 2.0F;

Hi, I have a question about vertical text property for labels. I have set several labels to show vertical text on one of my forms. I had no problems with them on my desktop computer. Now I installed the same application on my laptop and the text disappeared. The only way I found in order to reveal them was to change the Font to "Aharoni". I do not want to use Aharoni. Other computers may not have it
