Setting orientation of page when inserting table

May 7, 2012 at 12:05 PM


I'm trying to insert wide tables into a document and set the orientation of the page the table resides on to landscape. How can I do this without setting the entire document to landscape?

I don't think it's possible at this stage.

Can you even do this with Microsoft Word?

1st way:

"You'll want to go to the page you want to switch to landscape, go into page setup, switch it to landscape, change "Apply To" to "From This Point Forward" and then hit ok. Now select something on the next page, go back into page setup, and change the orientation back to portrait, and again select "From This Point Forward" -- leaving just the one page changed."

2nd way:

"You need to first break that page into a separate section.
Insert > Break

I think you need a break before and after the page you want to make Landscape.

Then apply the Landscape to only that section
File > Page Setup > Landscape > Apply To: This Section"

A visual way to do this:

In Office 2010 it is also possible to select the text/table/pictures you want to have on a Landscape page, press Page Layout -> Margins -> Custom Margins, select Landscape and Apply to "selected text". The selected text will appear on a separate page.
