Text upside down?

I need to print from Excel (2003) on card then fold in half. Is it possible to have the text upside down so that the "other" side of the card when folded will read the correct way?

Many thanks in advance, I'm sure one of you guys will know the answer!

Occasionally it's useful to have text upside-down in Word or Excel,
especially when it is an answer to a question or test. The current solution
of converting the text to a graphic just so it can be turned upside-down is
fiddly, and Publisher is not an option.

Format -> Text Direction... -> Orientation would be better in Word if it had
upside-down as an option.

Format Cells -> Alignment -> Orientation would be better in Excel with a
full 360 degrees to rotate the text.

Hi,
There is any formula or any tip to flip a text in a cell in Portrait orientation
from "This is a sample" to "ǝldɯɐs ɐ sı sıɥʇ"
For the sample I fliped, I use an online program but it mess up with numbers "1234567890" it transforms in "0987654321"
To be more exact I want a cell to take a value from another cell but upside-down
A1: example 1; A2: =A1(but upside down)
Thank you!

I have an Excel schedule that my employees are using. I want to be able to
print half the schedule right to left on the top half of a page and upside
down on the bottom half of a page. The reason for doing this is to provide a
pocket size chart that my employees can carry around after the printout is
folded.

How can I turn the text inside the Text Box upside down?

Example, I want to put in text "ABCDEFG" into the text box, but I want to
rotate it to 180 degree, to make it upside down.

I have upgraded to excel 2007 and i cant figure out how to get my text to turn upside down. I thought that i could do that in older versions but i may be wrong. any help would be great!
thanks

Where I work we use excel files to keep track of changes made to products. Since upgrading to Excel 2007, the form we use outputs whatever text we put into the entry fields backwards and upside down.

I wish I were only joking.

The form was created using a previous version of Excel, I do not know which as I have only been working here a short time. I've attached a picture demonstrating the problem.

Our site has just been migrated from Windows 2000 to Windows XP running Office 2003 and Excel 2003.

Buttons controlling Macros on some spreadsheets now have the 'Caption' written upside-down. Clicking on the button reverts the text and the underlying code is triggered. The macros are working successfully but the buttons on the spreadsheet spoil the effect!

VB experts here have drawn a blank and I've checked all I know to the limit of my VBA knowledge so wondered if anyone out there could provide assistance?

Thanks

Hi. I use Excel to make file tabs for our vertical file cabinet. I create
an entire sheet, which we then cut out.

I type the label names in the second, fourth, sixth, etc row, and link to
those labels in the first, third, fifth, etc row. (so that I don't need to
type twice)

I leave the two duplicated labels attached, and fold it over, to have the
text printed on both sides (so that you can read the labels no matter which
side you approach the cabinet from). The only problem is that the text on
one side is now upside down.

The text rotation option will only let you rotate 90° in either direction -
how do I rotate 180°?

Combo Boxes that I made using Excel 98/Windows 98 are upside down when I open the worksheet in Excel 2002/ Windows XP?

Hi there. I am trying to figure out a simple way to do a sort of upside-down lookup. I am having difficulty putting my problem into words without reference to a spreadhseet prop, so I have attached a small spreadsheet with a rudimentary example and explanation of what I am trying to achieve.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Hi,

I'm trying to print my landscape sheet from excel "upside down" or at an 180 degree angle. This is because when printing this and other sheets that are portrait the landscape one comes out the wrong direction with the top of the landscape sheet facing left instead of right.

Is there any way to fix this via excel / vba?

Thanks.

Hello,

Is there any chance in excel to format cells so I can have my text upside down?

I know you can do + or - 90 digrees but is there any hidden option or add in that would allow me to do upside down.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Thanks
Simon

I am creating a spreadsheet that will be folded in half, put on a clipboard,
and used in flight.. Most used data is on the right side of the form, less
used on the left.

I want to be able to just fold the document back, while in the clipboard, to
access the less used data. To do this, I need to print he left side
normally, and the right side upside down.

I could print both sides normally, cut it in half, rotate the right side and
have it photocopied, but I thought I would ask if there is a way to set it up
via excel.

Hello, Excel-people,

My HP printer can't print all the way to the edge of the paper.
And I'm trying to print 2 pages (like A5 size) on one piece of paper.
I'll punch holes at the edges, so the papers will be in a binder.

So, I need to print some cells Up-Side-Down.
This might sound crazy, but please look at the attached picture to see it.

In the picture, I want to print the Yellow cells as shown.

Can that be done?

Thanks, in advance.

I have a two page worksheet that i want to print on one page front and back. That is not the problem. My problem is...Is there a way to print the second page of the worksheet so it is upside down on the back of the first page so you can flip the page vertically?

A colleague has a stacked bar chart that is for use in a PowerPoint presentation.

When copying and pasting it from Excel 2007 into PowerPoint 2007 the bars representing the data flip upside down but the rest of the graph remains the right way up. This also happens when copying and pasting into the same excel document or printing - in print preview the graph appears fine.

Copying and pasting as a picture (Enhanced metafile) works but does not really solve why this is happening.

Greetings!

I have a bar chart keyed to a list of some 30 names. The list shows how many times a particular customer has contacted my company using a standard COUNTIF formula, and that information is then set into a bar chart.

The problem is that the bar chart is upside-down to the list sort. The list names go in ascending order from A - Z.

The bar chart (over which I have no direct sort control) presents itself in descending order from Z - A.

I would very much like the bar chart presented A - Z like the list. Any clues?

Thanks very much,
Brian

Hi,
Its me again! I am trying to copy values from column "c" of one software sheet to column "d" in BOQ sheet. Now the task is
1. Not to copy Blank cells.
2. Not to copy certain text strings such as : "Software Base", "No. of Tags" , "Select No. of Tags", "Name" and "No. of Days"
3. To insert a new row in "BOQ" for every cell copied in it from "Software"

Now if have researched on various forums and tried coming up with a code but the thing happening is that the entire thing is getting copied and i have no clue on what to do to make it work correct. Moreover, its coping everything upside down!!!

I need advice on it.! Any thing would be helpful!

Thanks.

Sub try_ps()
'
'
'
Dim tocopy As Integer
Dim x As Integer
Dim rng As Range
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set rng = Sheets("Software").Range("c1:c50")
x = Sheets("Data Sheet").Cells(3, 4).Value            ' x is the number of the row below which i want the values to
be inserted 
For i = 1 To 50
    tocopy = 0
    For Each c In rng
        If c.Value<>"" And c.Value <> "Software Base" Then  ' I have not written the other
values for the testing purposes!
            tocopy = 1
        End If
    Next c
       If tocopy = 1 Then
            Sheets("BOQ").Select
            Rows(x + 1).Select
            Selection.Insert Shift:=xlDown
            Sheets("Software").Cells(i, 3).Copy Destination:=Sheets("BOQ").Cells(x + 2, 4)
            tocopy = 0
        End If
    
Next i

Application.ScreenUpdating = True
        
End Sub


I need to allow my users to select a text string from a drop downlist box.
However each of the three possible text strings in the drop down box equates
to a value that I need to use for calculations. How can I assign numerical
values to the text selections?

Could anyone tell me how to go about this?

Thanks, Bill

I have just started using excel2003 from excel2000 and in 2000 I can take a
paragraph of text and add it to a single cell with no hassles.

However, in 2003 the data has essentially corrupted by splitting up and
writing down the page.

The data seems to split when it reaches a limit, when it reaches a hyphen,
when it reaches a comma and so on. I have however been able to work with the
'add data wizard' to 'remove' these deliminators.

I have looked and looked for someway to allow me to add this data in the way
it is intended, such as in office2000.

In Excel 2003/XP, adding text to an autoshape and then flipping the autoshape (either by using the rotation handle or the Draw menu vertical flip option) flipped the shape outline but left the text right-side up.

In Excel 2007/Vista, when the shape is flipped the text is now flipped upside down, too - and I can't find a way to get it right side up. Flipping the shape and then adding the text doesn't work and nothing I've found in the Format Text Effects sub-menu (displayed by a right-click on the shape border) works either.

Thanks in advance for any help on this!
