Writing mode: vertical in Reporting Services 2008
Hi I am new to Reporting Services 2008. I have a report from SSRS 2005. In that report layout, I modified text field's orientation to Vertical and set its writing mode as tb-rl. So, a field called [Report] displays text vertically starting from R. If this text is long say [Reporting services] it still displayed it vertically in one single line in SSRS 2005. But in SSRS 2008, It is appearing in two vertical lines. How can I get text in one vertical line? Please advise. Thanks!

very easy. increasing the height of text box did the trick.

Can you post some or all of your report in xml format please? I am building the report on the fly through XML and I've tried setting the WritingMode but I just can't get it to display the headers vertically. I am trying it on a tablix and would like some headers but not all to be displayed vertically. Any help is appreciated as I've been at this since yesterday

I am using a table for displaying text. For the header of table, I changed WritingMode. My report is developed using SSRS 2005. I am not sure about it in Tablix as I haven't used it yet. is it possible tablix doesn't allow WritingMode to be tweaked? It shouldn't be the case. just to test, create a dummy report with tablix and try to change WritingMode of tablix header.
