Hi, BM, if you want to show text vertically across cells, such as across A1:A, here is no ideas. But if you only want to shown text vertically in one cell, you can format the cell's orientation as verical text.

Hi, AK, Google Sheets haven't no direct equivalent to Excel's "Center Across Selection" formatting in Sheets right now, you can try its Merge horizontally feature to do it.
