Specifying header orientation and header text alignment for multiple headers

The header texts in cross tables can be displayed horizontally or vertically. You can also specify the horizontal and vertical alignment of the text within the header.

An example of a cross table with different header orientations and text alignments is shown below. Within a header, the horizontal alignment of the text can be set to Left, Center, or Right, and the vertical alignment to Top, Middle, or Bottom.
Cross table example
By changing to a vertical header orientation for narrow cross table columns, you can use the screen estate more efficiently. See also Changing height and width in tables.


  1. Click the header of a cross table column or row.
  2. In the opened menu, beneath Header, click the buttons to specify the horizontal text alignment, the vertical text alignment, and the header orientation.


All headers on the same hierarchical level as the clicked header are adjusted at the same time.
Note: You can adjust only individual headers. For details, see Specifying header orientation and header text alignment for an individual header.
