The purpose of the Rotate Label ActiveX control is to produce Rotated Text in
Microsoft Access. This control mimics a normal Access TextBox control. It has a
RecordSource property so that it can be bound to a field or contain an Expression.
When you have installed the Runtime Files, you need to register RotateLabelVer2.ocx and
To use the control in Access, simply goto the Insert menu and select ActiveX controls. The ListBox that pops up should
contain a listing "Access RotateText control 2.0".
Once the control is inserted on your Form or Report you can double click or right click and select Properties to get
at the control's properties.There is an online Help File, though it is slightly dated! :-)
A large percentage of ActiveX controls do not function properly within the VBA Access environment. A lot of it has to do
with differences in the Extender and Ambient control properties. It took a lot of trial and error to get this control to
work in both Form and Report views.
Include with the Source files are the compiled ActiveX control and the required Property Page DLL file.
- RotateLabelVer2.ocx ActiveX control
- Msstkprp.dll Property Page DLL
You must have the VB6 Runtime Files to use this control. The runtime files
can be downloaded
here. Or you can get RotateLabel.zip from my Web Page.
If you are not comfortable manually registering Ocx and DLL files, I would suggest you download one of the SelfInstall RotateLabel
packages from my Web Page.
