Word – Rotate a table in word

microsoft-word-2007

I have a word 2007 document in portrait mode. I have a table that is too wide to fit in 8.5" but would fit in 11". Is there a way to make just one page landscape? Or alternately is there a way to rotate a table 90 degrees?

Best Answer

Yes, you can. Insert a section break before and after the page you want to turn to landscape and then you can use page layout on that page only. Also, here is another approach using margins.

In general, section breaks in Word are a good way to change any of the settings that you usually think of as global to your document. For example, you can use section breaks to change the way page numbers work in the middle of the document, to change margins, orientation, and more.
