I want to add a table with the long description header but I can't find how to change text direct other than 90 degrees (Vertical or Horizontal). Is it possible?

Can't you just use a simple text box for the text you want to rotate? – Karan Dec 2 '12 at 0:16
I can try. This table has about 30 columns. The prefer way is to make it just as a regular table. – 1888 Dec 2 '12 at 15:37

You can rotate Word Art text freely. It may not be exactly what you're looking for, but it works. Just click the green dot and rotate away.

You can rotate words at a 45 degree angle if they are in a text box. The only problem I've had is keeping the text box in place once I've put it where I want it.

I don't think you can do this in Word tables, but if you insert an Excel spreadsheet into a Word document (Insert tab > Tables > Excel Spreadsheet) you can then type in your heading in a cell. Then, right click the CELL and select "Format Cells...". Then, goto the Alignment tab and specify the text angle on the right.
