    Text Direction (2002/ SP2)

    Can I extend the orientation alignment to 180 instead of 90 degrees. Or is there another option?

    Upside down?

    You could make the text a picture, copy it to Paint, rotate it 180

    Yes, Upside down. Thought about doing that. I remember that it could be done in one of the earlier versions in Excel. Just thought I lost where the feature option was located or trick to fix. Thanks.

    This might only work for XL2002.

    Type your text in a normal cell, though for best results apply background color, even white.

    Copy the cell and holding the shift key select the Edit menu where you should see options to Paste Picure and/or Paste Picture Link. Select one (the latter links the picture to the cell you copied so that any changes to the cell are reflected in the picture).

    You should now be able to use the Rotate and Flip options from the drawing toolbar to invert it. I think this is the part where older versions of XL may not work.
