    Angled Text Box or Label (A2K SR1)

    Is there a way to insert a label or text box in a form such that the label or text box is on a 45 degree angle?

    ... I did this by creating the text in Excel at the angle wanted. Then copied and pasted the data into the form. Any other ways of doing this strictly in access?

    The only way I know is to use Total Access Components

    Have you tried WordArt? If you have Office, you already have that.

    ... I will have to try this. However, I have never, ever, used WordArt!
