Default How to adjust text orientation with degree other than 90 degrees?

Within Word’s table, how to turn text (text orientation) with degree rather
than straight 90 degrees?
I can do that in Excel table, but can’t do it with table created by Word.
Please help.

Word doesn't have that ability. The only way Word itself can rotate text other
than by 90 degrees is with WordArt. Otherwise, you can embed a section of an
Excel worksheet in Word, or you can use PowerPoint or a graphics program to
produce a picture of rotated text and paste that into Word. See
http://www.gmayor.com/rotate_text.htm for details.
