    how do I print upside down?

    I made a little Excel sheet.
    Landscape mode and I plug data into the cells.
    I print it out and make a small tent by folding it in half.

    I would like to print the top half of the sheet in normal right side up
    But print the bottom half upside down.

    this way, no matter which way the Tent is placed on the desk, whichever
    side I'm looking at will be right side up.

    I know, sounds dumb to you but it works for me.

    Please and thank you.

    Create a picture of it by selecting the data and Shift+Edit>Copy Picture and
    Shift+Edit>Paste picture. Rotate as needed.

    Printing Tent Cards in Excel

    Use PORTRAIT instead of Landscape.

    A1: your wording for Tent placard.
    B1: =A1

    formatting: what is horizontal for the tent is vertical for formatting.
    You probably want to use a 36 point (1/2 inch) font size.

    A1: Format, Cells, Alignment,
    Horizontal: Right
    Vertical: General
    Text Control: [x] wrap text
    B1: Format, Cells, Alignment,
    Horizontal: Left (Indext)
    Vertical: Bottom
    Text Control: [x] wrap text

    Additional Comments:
    You can't print upside down in Excel 2000 with Windows 2000.
    On mainframes that ability was not available for me in Script/VS
    and our printers until somewhere between 1990 to 1994 for my use
    and that was only when upside down versions of fonts were distributed
    (later fonts could be turned with TrueType fonts), but it also required
    printing backwards (sdrawkcab gnitnirp) in the upsidedown
    font. You will notice that Excel only permits you up to 90 degrees
    left or right. Perhaps Excel 2003 can do that by now, but certainly
    not before that would be available in MS Word..
