Unable to view vertical text for crystal report at dynamic viewer

I have a problem regarding crystal reports to rotate the text object. I rotated my text object to 90 degrees. It is working fine with acrobat, word and excel. However, when viewed on the web page/BO inforview dynamic viewer it is not shown in 90 degrees(vertically). It shows horizontally!! ( Suppose to be vertical )

If any one had solution for this means, please help me.

Vertical text is currently not supported in the DHTML Viewer. It is supported in the ActiveX Viewer and the Java Applet Viewer. For the DHTML Viewer here is a workaround:

1. Modify the default CSS file which is located in:

For CE 10: c:\program files\common files\crystal decisions\2.5\crystalreportviewers10\css

For XI R2: c:\program files\business objects\common\3.5\crystalreportviewers115\css

The file is default.css

2. Add the vertical text entry to the CSS file and save



writing-mode: tb-rl;


3. Specify the vertical text tag in your report by right clicking on the field that you want vertical, selecting properties, and under the "common" tab, enter "verticalText" in the "CSS Class Name" field
