I have a file in Excel that has some columns with the text oriented sideways but when I upload the file to Microsoft Teams the orientation changes.  I have tried to download the file to correct the orientation but when I do it is correct in Excel.  Then when I upload it again I have the same issue in Teams.  Any suggestions are welcomed!  Thanks!!

This is because Teams uses Excel on-line, which does not yet support display of text orientations other than horizontal.

This is very frustrating and means I probably cannot use our spreadsheet in the teams environment

In Excel outside of teams, this spreadsheet shows the date vertically along the cell, but in uploading the spreadsheet into teams and accessing, it loses the formatting and it is inconvenient to keep having to resize to see the dates...
It means we are back to having our information located in different spaces which is frustrating.
