# Rotated text within a tabular within a figure [closed]

Inside a `tabular` environment (which in turn lives inside a `figure*` environment), I need some short text running up the page. I tried `\rotatebox` with the `graphics` and `graphicx` packages as well as `turnbox` with the `rotating` package, but all to no avail: the text stubbornly remains horizontal. Any help appreciated.

Please post an example of the code you've tried out so far. Separately, do you use a two-column environment? I ask because you mention the use of a `figure*` environment. – Mico Aug 28 '12 at 11:42
@Walter: It will not work if you will just view the DVI ouput. Try to generate DVI to PS and then PS to PDF. – jeecabz Aug 28 '12 at 11:43
@jee-ar this was it: had to look at the pdf rather then dvi output (the dvi viewer is just no good). `\rotatebox` works fine. – Walter Aug 28 '12 at 12:12
