Column Header to appear vertically rather than horizontally RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a couple of fields in my SSRS report where the value is either Y or N but the column headers are often two words such as Minor Injury, Major Injury.  I want to have the column headers appear vertically rather than horizontally in order to save space and get the report to appear on one page. Right now the report is 13  inches long.  Can someone help?

  • Hi Chuck,

    Click on the column header and in the properties window, go to the "Writing Mode" property and set the value as "Vertical".

    If you are using SSRS 2005, set the value as tb-rl

    Hope this helps.
