Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2020-05-08

This article will bring you solutions to change the orientation of both the whole worksheet and the text in cells in Microsoft Excel 2007 and Excel 2010.


Change the orientation of current worksheet

Sometime you need to change the layout of current worksheet to Portrait or Landscape. There are two ways to change the orientation of current worksheet.

Just click the Page Layout > Orientation, and then select the Portrait item or the Landscape item from the drop down list. See screenshot:

Note: You can also change current worksheet's orientation with clicking File > Print > Portrait Orientation or Landscape Orientating the Settings section. By the way, this method is invalid in Excel 2007.

How do I get the color to slant like the words? I changed the direction of my text and put borders, but when I try to color fill the cell, the color goes straight up and not slanted like the text.
