Cant change from vertical to horizontal display by inverting position of Tablet.
Went to Settings and Display menu.  See nothing obviously relating to my issue.  No 'Advanced'  tab.
I believe there is no English language User Manual for this Chinese made Tablet.

    This function should be automatic. It is possible the gyro in the tablet is damaged.

    found the answer on another site
    The answer was not to be found in 'Settings'\'Display menu',  but in the 'Settings' / 'Accessibility' menu. Here there is an 'auto-rotate' setting. This needs to be enabled.

    I wouldn't have thought of the Accessibility menu.

    You should read OS supplied guidelines before developing. I can't stress that enough. The guidelines will help you understand the reasons mobile app developers do what they do.  Apple is very particular when they review appstore submissions.

    Polish reports in Access so they look terrific. Take yourself to another level. Equations, Back Color, Alternate Back Color. Write easy VBA Code. Tighten space to use less pages. Launch report from a menu, considering criteria only when it is filled…
