How do I horizontally align a column heading in a QlikView pivot table ?

Hi Everyone,

I have a pivot table object in my QlikView dashboard with a dimension displayed vertically, and a dimension displayed horizontally. I have set the 'horizontal column' labels to display vertically ('Vertical Text on Column Labels' on the Presentation tab which is fine except for one column......the first column (the column with the vertical dimension values).

This text label looks rather stupid occupying a large wide blank cell and would look better if it was aligned horizontally. Is there anyway I can make this label the exception by displaying it horizontally ?

Thanks in anticipation

    Can you post a screenshot as on 2nd read of your question, there is a global flag for vertical columns.  If you've stacked them, they'll all be vertical.

    Screen shot attached. It's the 'Product' label I want to horizontalise (??).
    You'll see I've set the Vertical Text checkbox.

    By the way, the current column headings (1, 2, 3 etc) will be replaced by text in the live version.

    nope, not possible.  The only thing I can think of is to use an image, instead of text for that label... very much a hack tho haha

    Yep, thought as much. I like the idea of an image though, for future use.
