How do I rotate Text in VBA?

Does anyone know how to rotate text in Visual Basic for Applications? I have tried looking at a number of resources to no avail.

I can get vertical text in MS Access, but I need the text to be the other way round.

Might help to clarify a bit more.

Do you want text to rotate as in spin round or rotate as in appear at an angle (ie 45 degrees)

Please restate the question with as much info as possible about what you are trying to do.

I have a plant database, which I want to be able to print labels. I need the price to be rotated by 90 degrees. So that I can tilt my head left and the price will read normally (as if it was the right way up). I have (since launching this thread) found an ActiveX plug-in that allows me to get the text the right way round. However I cannot format it (i.e. add the '£' and 2 decimal places).
