Microsoft Access lets you rotate text boxes within a report. It only allows you to rotate the text boxes 90 degrees to the right. Note that you may require administrative rights on certain Access reports to rotate text-boxes. The Vertical property within Access sets a form control for vertical display. You can use this feature to rotate the text box.

    Launch Microsoft Access from the Start menu or desktop shortcut. Click the "File" tab and select "Open." Browse to navigate to the report that you wish to edit. Single-click the file and choose "Open."
