    Right click on the cell you want to have vertical text in and select "Format
    Cells" click on "Alignment" and change the click on button that shows the
    text in the vertical orientation.

    Highlight the cells you want the text to be verticle. Right-click the
    highlighted area and select Format Cells. Click the Alignment tab. Change
    the orientation option on the right as desired.

    Not my idea of vertical typing.

    What orientation do you wish?

    There are two methods of achieving vertical text.

    Using the protractor in Alignment or just clicking on "Text" beside the
    protractor.

    Try both to see which you like best.
