I am using pdf for printing.. I have many coloums hence the width of each coloum is less.
Therefore the coloum name doesnt fit properly in the coloum.
To avoid this I want to print it in vertical format. Can anyone suggest any solution for this??

Forget the above example, this is what you need:

PdfPCell cell = new PdfPCell(new Phrase("Table Header 1"));
cell.setRotation(90);
