How do I get multilevel category labels to appear horizontal?

  1. I am creating a large 100% stacked bar chart but my 2nd and third categories
    on my axis appear vertical instead of horizontal is there anyway to change
    this? I am running Excel 2007

    You can not change the orientation of the outer level category labels as you
    require, only the inner most level of labels is affected by the Alignment

    If you want full control you will have to fake the axis labels with
    additional series and data labels or textboxes.

    Is this still true, if that is the case there is no other way than fake it.
