How can one alter the default manner in which access orients vertical text?
I need to change the default orientation for a ticket that will be filed with the ticket no printed along the side, and the default settings make it appear upside down when filed.

Other than the standard way Access prints vertically, you can use methods like this.

Thanks....although those rotate text, they seem to depend on a graphic image solution.
I need to rotate dynamic text on a report.

'Tis the only way I know of if you don't like the standard "Access" Vertical property.
Note: The code referenced is made to be imported into your DB.

I think FMS Inc. makes an ActiveX control that works in Access that will do this ... but it is not "free" ...

Yeah, ive seen that one. I just thought someone might have done it themselves.
(Obviously it can be accomplished with code, i just wanted to see if someone could save me some time).

Oops, writing some code to reverse the order of the characters was going to be my suggestion.
