How do I rotate a landscape page 180 degrees for printing?

When I print a landscape page in my document it prints "upside down"
intuitivly it should print the opposite direction to read appropriatly with
the portrait pages before and after it. (Including the headers and footers)

You can rotate the page 180 deg. But what is "intuitively upside
down"? There are conventions for which direction a rotated page should
appear, depending on whether it's a right-hand or left-hand page, how
many there are, how it relates to the text on the opposite page, etc.

Ok, how do you rotate the page 180 deg.? because that is ultimatly what I
would like to do. I'll try my best to explain my situation. There are 18
pages in total, pages 14 and 15 are the only pages landscaped, they are
charts that have been inserted from Excel (one chart per page). When every
thing prints out (single sided) the landscaped pages have the footer on the
left side and the header on the right. I think/want that the entire page
should print out opposite (rotated 180 deg.). With it printed out this way I
can then take the whole batch and bind it on the left margin and when the
reader reaches the landscape pages they will rotate the "book" and the blank
side of the page before will be on top and the landscape page on the bottom
(how it prints now would have the blank on the bottomand the landscape on the
top). Thank you for your help

Wouldn't you want the header and footer with the sideways charts to be
at the top and bottom of the vertical page, so that only the chart
itself is rotated? How Word treats the chart depends on how you
inserted it, but if it's treated as a graphic, you should be able to
use the "rotate" commands (where they are depends on your version of
Word).
