Sorry, my mistake. I post my answer as a clarification. Here's the answer again:
First of all, thank you for choosing my workaround as your answer. My
apologies for the delay because I thought I hit a snag in the
workaround but luckily I was still able to solve it. :)
Like I said, the process could be tedious, depending on how many cells
are in your table because you will first need to reproduce the table
in Excel and then manipulate the text from there. I reckon you already
know how to use Excel so I'll proceed with less detailed instructions.
If ever you can't understand something in the instruction, please ask
and I'll be glad to be of further assistance as much as possible.
1) Open Excel and reproduce the table that you want to put in
PowerPoint in any way you see fit. Make sure to save your file
2) To rotate specific texts, right-click on the cell of the text and
choose "Format Cells..." To select multiple cells you can press Shift
or Ctrl + the cell of the text that you want to select.
3) In the pop-out, click on the "Alignment" tab and enter "90" in the
"Degrees" dialogue box. The text will be tilted to your desired 90º
4) After rotating the specific text that you want, make sure to check
your work once more and that everything is the same as you'd like it
to appear in PowerPoint, including the lines, colors, etc.
5) Finally, go to View> Page Break Preview. Adjust the page borders
(blue line) to exactly fit your work. So if you have a 10 x 10 table,
that table exactly fits page 1. If you have 3 worksheets by default,
right-click on the name of the 2 other sheets and choose delete to
avoid possible problems. You can then select Normal view in the View
menu. Remember to save your work.
1) Open your PowerPoint document and this time, instead of inserting a
table, you insert "Object..."
2) In the pop-out, select "Create new" and select "Microsoft Excel
Worksheet". An Excel worksheet will be placed.
3) In your Excel file, select only the table that you created, copy
it, right-click on cell 1A in the PowerPoint Excel worksheet, and
choose Paste. Do not use "Paste Special..." Save your work.
4) Click on the page. You will notice that the Excel interface is
gone. Only the table is there.
There is a possibility that gray cell border lines will appear in the
table. If that's the case, you will simply need to:
A) Drag the object up and to the left near the border of the page,
right-click on the table, choose Worksheet Object then Edit. The Excel
interface will appear again.
B) You simply need to adjust the black handle nodes on the Excel
interface and make sure that only the table is displayed inside the
interface. So if you have a 10 x 10 table, it exactly fits inside the
C) Click on the page once more and the interface is gone.
D) To resize the table, you simply handle it the way you resize
objects in PowerPoint.
Actually, you can skip the "In Excel" procedure in this instruction
and proceed to do the PowerPoint instruction instead. However, I
thought that it would be better to have a separate file for the table
and access the full features of Excel and manipulate the contents from
there. Like I said earlier, I thought I hit a snag in the process.
Hence, the solution I presented is my way of avoiding further
Again, thank you very much for choosing my solution. If you have a
question, please feel free to post your clarification before rating
this and I'll attend to you as soon as possible. Thanks for asking.
