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.
