Before I state my question, let me just say that I know how to rotate
drawing objects and text boxes in Word. But rotating an Excel file is
proving to be much harder (for me).

Here's my situation:

I want to insert a one-page Excel file into a Word doc. The Word doc is in
portrait, the Excel file is in landscape (and needs to be -- if it were in
portrait, it wouldn't fit on the page). I'd like to insert the Excel file
into the Word doc and then rotate it 90 degrees so that it's in portrait and
can have the same headers and footers that the rest of the document has. (Or
I can rotate it before I insert it - it doesn't matter.) But when I try to
Format Object, the rotating option is always grayed out.

I've looked in Help but it keeps trying to direct me to "rotating drawing
objects." And please note that I'm not referring to rotating the text within
the cells. I'm hoping to be able to rotate the entire Excel file 90 degrees.
Any ideas???

Thank you in advance!

P.S. I know this is easy to do in FrameMaker. Sigh.
