    Unanswered: How to I get into "Properties" for MS Excel labels?

    Hello:Everyone!
    My problem is that I want to write labels in Excel at an angle. I understand it can be done by getting into properties for labels. I don't know how to do that? Can anyone help me? Thank you

    Howdy and welcome to the board.

    What laebls are you referring to? Within Excel or VBA?

    Chart labels? Select the x-axis and right-click and choose Format axis. Then select last tab "Alignment". You can enter a degree for angle or click and drag the clock-like icon to whatever angle you want.

    So, you want the text in a cell set at a specific angle?

    Okay, similar process to charts. Select cell(s), right-click and choose Format Cells. Select the second tab (Alignment), then on the right side you can set the degrees by entering a value. Or on the icon, click the red diamond and drag it to the position you want.
