No text rotation on a distributed report

I've recently encountered a problem with a report that was put on an Windows Server 2003 IIS web site. When run locally all is fine (XP) but when run from the server under ASP.NET all headings that have been rotated 90 degrees is not rotated.

The font used is Arial 6 point and I have tried setting the report to not use a printer. Any suggestions?

Hi Mark,

Here is a potential work around you can look at:

A solution to Rotate Text in DHTML viewer:

Create a JavaScript class in the HTML code of your webform.

<style type="text/css">



In the report designer, right-click on the field you wish to rotate and select u201CFormatu2026u201D

On the u201CCommonu201D tab of the Format Editor dialog, enter the CSS Class Name, u201Cverticaltextu201D

Bind the report to the viewer and the text for the field should appear rotated.


Borders on the field do not work

Could not get Tops pointing left

Background, borders etc must be specified in the class, not in the Formatting of the field.

Best Regards,
