    Turning text in text box sideways (Word 2000)

    I'm using Word's drawing tools and would like to rotate the text in one box 90 degrees (sideways). I tried using the "free rotate" button, but only the box rotated, not the text inside. Is there any way to get the text to rotate like this? Thanks.

    You can either choose "Format > Textflow" directly from the menu, or you can show the "TextBox" toolbar ("View > Toolbars") and use the button on the right.

    Wow, Klaus, thanks. I can't believe I forgot about the Text Box toolbar that appears when you're in a Text Box. It was in among all the other toolbars at the top of my screen and kind of got lost. And I've never used the Format > Text Direction. Thanks for bailing me out.
