    Unanswered: Rotating text

    I need to have a text box on my form where the writing is rotated by 90 degrees, while the rest of the form is as normal. Any ideas?

    oops... forgot to say I'm in Access 97. I don't appear to have that property.

    If you click on the Downloads link on that site (mention above by jepi) you will find a "Rotate Label OCX" control that you could also try.

    Minty - I have never used activex controls and the computer I'm running access on is not connected to the internet so I can't use the autoinstall feature. I'm not really comfortable with installing it manually.

    I've found that the AccRoText kind of works in reports (it rotates but doesn't put the box in the right place) but not in forms... so I think I'll use a report (which of course opens up all kind of different problems which belong in another thread!). Thanks everybody.
