MS Word: How to Create Vertical Text
You can change the orientation of text from horizontal to vertical in a few quick clicks.
This trick is useful if you want to have text run up the side of a page or along a column.
To do this, the text must be inside a text box, shape, callout, or table.
You can’t change the orientation if it’s on a regular paragraph.
