Can any of you experienced Microsoft Word for Windows XP help me? I've attached a sample of what I want my data to look like; typed of course! I want it to appear horizontally on the document.

Thanks!

Romeyrome

P.S.
Well, I thought I was attaching a file. I keep getting timed-out, then it goes to "server not found".

Basically, I'm just trying to display my data on a border horizontally.

I tried using www.spread-it.com, but this is what I get:
Access forbidden!
You don't have permission to access the requested directory. There is either no index document or the directory is read-protected.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

Can someone please help me? I have a project deadline. All I'm trying to do is get my text to appear horizontally on a banner, when I print it out!

Also, have you looked at insert, text box, format, text direction, or telling the printer to print landscape

some video cards have an option to rotate the screen (mine's called rotation in the advanced properties)...you could see if your video card has that

Where is that found? Is that somewhere inside the control panel?

Open the document, click view, toolbars, tick drawing, click the rectangle on the drawing tool bar to get this

adjust the size the same way as a text box, righ click an empty part, click add text, then click draw, click rotate and flip

Keith:

Just for FYI, I had to initialize the picture toolbar, then rotate the document.

But I sure appreciate you opening up the door, and putting me on the right road!

Thanks a million.

Have a great weekend!
