Hi,

I've inserted an ActiveX label control in a Powerpoint 2010 slide to receive text from an Excel worksheet.

How can I change the text direction of the control from horizontal to 'rotate at 90 degrees' ?

Thanks
Toco

Hi,

So, I copy the rotated cell and then Paste into my Powerpoint slide. As a hyperlink ? There are no Paste Link options available. Only an Embed option.

Not sure what to do here.

That's great thanks. One final thing. How do I remove the white border from the object? I've gone through the Format Object dialog but can't find an option.
