Ah. Good point. I suppose the thing to do, then, is set up the columns and
rows in such a way that they come out right when you rotate them. After
all, you already know that's what you're going to be doing. It requires a
little advance planning, is all.

Of course, if the table already exists, cut and paste, it is!

Pasting the cell contents isn't very efficient, but I think it's necessary
this case. If you take an existing table and just change the orientation of
cell's content, the cells wind up in the wrong order when you rotate the
page to
read the table.

An example (I hope these tabs work...): this table...

Persian Cuddly Long-haired
Siamese Vocal Short-haired
Devon Rex Playful None to speak of

would wind up reading:

Devon Rex Siamese Persian BREED
Playful Vocal Cuddly PERSONALITY

and so on... Unless I'm misunderstanding your suggestion.

Maybe some Word super-guru will know a much better way to do this...
