I have a MS Graph pie chart, and I need to flip it upside down... anyone know how to do this?

The solution can be either in microsft access or microsoft word.  I copy and paste the graph to word through VB.

Thanks in advance...

I had tried to that link, but I actually need the whole chart, which contains the heading, chart it self, and legend.  Basically the way it is now, it prints out in landscape mode.  I need for it to print up side down in landscape mode.  It seems like a very wierd request, but the client doesnt feel like flipping the page over manually when the report is printed out.  The page the chart is one is one of many in the report that is created using word automation, and the way he staples the report, he thinks it would be easier to read it he whole graphic was flipped 180 degrees...

OK, you are talking about flipping images/mirror printing.

As far as I know, you would need a third party add-on to do this from Access.  Word has some capability (see below), but if your client has the MS Office Suite that includes MS Publisher, MS Publisher would probably be the better way to go.
 
   Ms Word (see second paragraph)

In order to get to the Word link, you have to select "Reverse and Mirror Printing" from the tips on the right hand side.

Why don't you try MS Publisher, which should work, and won't cost you anything if you already have the MS Office Suite?

I am generating a word document from access using word automation, so this needs to be incorporated into the programming and can't be a manual step... I'm currently copying the ms graph to a clipboard and then pasting it in the word document...

This link may help you.  Make sure you have the graphics filters installed.  It comes with Word, but is not auto installed. See link toward bottom:
