I don't have Reports 6i, but 10g says (if you try to rotate the field) "REP-3103: Only text and graphical boilerplate can be rotated". See what happens in 6i (if it contains Layout menu - Rotate).

Same problem facing in Reports 6i. there must be a way. Oracle must provide some solution/patch for this. Please help to find.

They must provide it? You must be kidding!

Try to contact Oracle Support. I'm afraid that the answer will be sorry, Developer Suite 6i is no more supported. As of newer versions, I know that 10g doesn't do that either. 11g? No idea, but you may ask Oracle and - if the answer is "yes, you can rotate fields in Reports 11g", are you willing to upgrade your application to 11g?

Alternatively, search for other, non-Oracle reporting tools (such as Crystal Report or Jasper iReport) and see whether they are capable of doing what you are looking for. I never worked with Crystal Report, but I have written a few reports using iReport. Can't remember whether you can rotate fields there, though, and I don't have it installed any more.

However, I believe that iReport works on the web. Is your current application client/server, or did you deploy it to the web? That might also affect your choice.

I'm not the right person to answer those questions. I never migrated any 6i application to a higher version, so I'd have to Google for instructions (but that's something you can do by yourself). As you plan to contact Oracle Support anyway, ask them that question, I'm quite sure that they will provide documentation you are interested in.

Although 6i application is an old one, desupported etc. and there's nothing wrong in wanting to upgrade it, think twice whether it is worth to do not-that-easy task (migration) just to be able to display certain matrix report fields vertically.
