    Text alignment

    Is it possible to make a control run vertically instead of horizontally (similar to what you can do with WordArt in Word)? I can't find anything under text alignment.

    Any help is appreciated.

    In Access2000 set the vertical property of the control to yes. I don't remember whether this option was available in previous versions of Access.

    Sorry, my post was incomplete - I forgot to mention that I'm using Acces97, so the vertical property isn't available. Any other suggestions? Thanks!

    I did just see something on a website about a rotate text funtion. I have not tried it.

    Re: Text alignment

    I downloaded and installed the custom control from the website, but keep getting an error message in Access when I try to add the control to my report ("The operation on the OLE object failed. The OLE server may not be registered. To register the OLE server, reinstall it"). I've tried using Tools|ActiveX Controls|Register to fix this, to no avail. Can anyone help? Thanks again!
