WORD Table cell text entry problem:  seem to get forced to vertical text entries

I am using WORD 2010 and trying to work with a simple table. May this is just simple action for many of you, but I just can't  get around after having struggled with it for 30 minutes.

So the symptom was when I type in a line in the cell, it gave me a vertical column of the characters that I entered. Don't know if it's just a feature setting or some problem with my version of the WORD (2010). Please the the attached snapshot

Thanks

Ze

If there is not enough space for more than one character in a line, a fresh line will be started, so that it looks like a vertical column of characters. It might be that you have a lot of cell 'padding'.

It is also possible to use the Text Direction setting to rotate the whole line through a multiple of 90 degrees.

There isn't a snapshot, but it probably won't help. Please post the (redacted) document itself.

Hi Steve
+1?
Thought I'd lost track of time, but it's not a year since Feb 7th, so it isn't that Heather is one year old
