Printing Reports with Rotated Text

I have envelopes (8.5 x 11, with the length divided into 3 sections). I need a report to be printed with a 90 degree clockwise rotation on each section. Can this be accomplished through Access, or maybe through Word?

I couldn't find any way to easily rotate text in an Access 2000 report.

It is easy, however, to create a Word document with rotated text in a mail merge document. Just place the merge field you want to rotate in a table's cell, then change the Text Direction for the cell.

Maybe I am missing something, but can't you rotate the papeer and print Landscape instead of Portrait? Just use File|Page Setup...

You missed "with a 90 degree clockwise rotation on each section"...

I'm not sure about the rotated items to printed in each section.

If your items are text boxes or labels or else(that have "Vertical" property), you can set the "Vertical" = Yes (on "Others" tab of the item properties) for print the value with a 90 degree clockwise rotation as you want.

Is this you want?

CRagsdellCommented:
You can't use the Vertical property to rotate each section 90 degrees, as the third section will be upside down...

Maybe I took his request too literally...

tricks801,

Are you wanting the first section to be upright, the second section rotated 90 degrees, and the third section rotated another 90 degrees where that text is upside down compared to the first section?

If so, annine's answer will not give you the results you need, and you will have to go the Word route.

You can not set text or label fields to be "upside down" using the Vertical property, only vertical or horizontal.

If all you want is the first section to be upright, the second section rotated 90 degrees, and the third section upright again, anine's answer will give you the desired results.

But when you said rotation on each section, I naturally assumed you want the first section to be upright, the second section rotated 90 degrees, and the third section rotated another 90 degrees where that text is upside down compared to the first section.

Please advise...
