reverse text in Microsoft Office? If so, How?

I'm needing text to print out in a mirror image!

I'm assuming you're talking about doing this in Word, right? I did a search through Word's help and you can mirror image an object, so if you want to mirror image text, you would have to place the text into Word Art so Word will think it's a picture.

Click the AutoShape (AutoShapes: A group of ready-made shapes that includes basic shapes, such as rectangles and circles, plus a variety of lines and connectors, block arrows, flowchart symbols, stars and banners, and callouts.), picture (picture: A file (such as a metafile) that you can ungroup and manipulate as two or more objects or a file that stays as a single object (such as bitmaps).), WordArt (WordArt: Text objects you create with ready-made effects to which you can apply additional formatting options.), or clip art (clip art: A single piece of ready-made art, often appearing as a bitmap or a combination of drawn shapes.) you want to duplicate.
Click Copy and then click Paste .
On the Drawing toolbar, click Draw, point to Rotate or Flip, and then click Flip Horizontal or Flip Vertical.
Drag and position the duplicate object so that it mirrors the original object.
Note You may need to override the Snap-To-Grid option to position the object precisely. To do this, press ALT as you drag the object.

Sounds complicated, .... good luck!

it depends on your printer of course, but many printers have an option to print mirror image. So for me, I go file, print, preferences, features, and there is a click option for mirror image. Hope that is of some help to you :)
