    I have searched a lot inside Access help, but I still haven't found out how
    to change the label text direction when in vertical position. I'd appreciate
    if someone could solve this out.

    I don't believe the built-in label can do this.

    Some alternatives:

    Hi Bernardo

    To make a label or text field vertical call up the label properties in
    design view, go to the 'other' tab and change the vertical option from no to
    yes.

    I hope this helps - note if your using 2003 and ie7 the text will disappear!
    It's a known issue! Vertical works fine with 2000 and IE7 (on my back up
    system).

    A few others have commented the problem is fixed by removing ie7 - I haven't
    tried this yet
