I'm working on a table and inserting various text sections. How can I insert text going vertically rather than the normal horizontal format?
Thanks again in anticipation.

Right Click in the cell and choose Text Direction. The other useful one is to right click and then Cell Alignment - this puts the text in a predefined are of the cell.

go to Format, Text Direction. You then get 3 choices - 1 horizontal and 2 vertical.

If in office 2007, insert txt into the box/table cell, highlight it, then click change text direction button, found in table tools, layout.

In 2003 version, similarly insert & highlight the text, and click the change txt direction button which should be on your std menu toolbar.

U have a choice of reading up, or down, or horizontal.

The key thing is that u need to highlight the text which you have inserted into your box/cell.

It's the same procedure for text boxes in Word.
