How do I turn a document?

  Dannyb 18:16 31 Jul 2006

I have a form which is in landscape and it needs to remain that way, but, I have to insert it into a handbook. How do I turn the entire document so that it becomes portrait, with the writing and table going up the page rather than across. (I know I would have to turn the page to read it). I have tried to cut and paste but that changes the whole booklet into landscape. I have MS Word 2002. I'm sure it is stupidly simple, but.....

In your printer preference settings set it to print in portrait mode, do a print preview to ensure it is set up okay.

I don't want to print it, I want to insert it into a booklet so that all of the pages are in portrait.

A desktop publishing programme like Serif PagePlus is much better suited for producing booklet pages. You can get some early examples of Serif quite cheap.

See if this works.

Select all the text that you want to change the orientation of and cut it.

Insert a table of one column and one row, where you have cut the text from

Paste the text into it.

Then click here

and follow the instructions

It worked for me in Word 2000, although I did have to alter the size of the table afterwards.

"but, I have to insert it into a handbook"

Sorry, I assumed from above that you were going to print.

No problem phono, thanks for trying to help anyway.
