How can I make text upside down? I'm using fields to merge addresses. The
paper is special sized and will feed better upside down. TIA

Word can't do upside down text rotation except with WordArt. But what you
can do is set the page orientation to landscape, put the text into tables or
text boxes, and use the Text Direction commands for those special containers
to turn some of the text 90 degrees clockwise and other text 90 degrees
counterclockwise.

You can try using UpsideDownText.com to make your text upside down. It's not a perfect solution and it only works well for upside down text. The Word Art might make more sense, not sure.... but this is an easy alternative if it works for you. Bascially the upside down text thingy finds a unicode alternative for the text you enter and the unicode alternative looks as if it were the normal text flipped 90 degrees. I'm not sure how this will look when printed out but you can give it a try and tell me if it works alright. I hope this helps you. And otherwise you could of course use the Word Art option

If you have Acrobat Professional, you could save your document as PDF and
then use the rotate pages option in Acrobat to rotate a page 180°.

Check the properties of the printer driver, many will allow the paper to be
rotated by 180 degrees.
