Using MS Access/Rotate text


Is there any way to rotate a text in a label control up ? I am creating a report and I need to gain enough space.
Thank you and regards

Access does not support rotating labels as a built-in feature. You could make a label in Word or Excel, rotate it, screen capture it, and drop it in as an image... if you REALLY need this.
