Pivot table: vertical text only in new column headers

Dear all,

I moved a dimension into columns in a pivot table. Now we want to generate a report through NPrinting but report space is limited and we want to make it look nice. What we want is to put column headers of the generated new columns to a vertical position and let the others column headers in horizontal position. I cannot find the property which allows to put the text of only these new headers in vertical position. When selecting Properties...>Presentation>Vertical Text on Column Labels every column header in the whole table is rotated to a vertical position. What I am trying to achieve follows,


Conceptual drawing. We moved the Type dimension to columns.

In our real chart new headers are long text and corresponding cells are filled with numeric short data. Rotate text of these new headers in a vertical position will optimize space use for the report.

Does there exist any manner to achieve it?

Thanks in advance!!

We have option in Presentation tab like Vertical column Labels.

Before develop something, think If placed (The Right information | To the right people | At the Right time | In the Right place | With the Right context)

Here you need to set.

We cannot obtain the conceptual drawing by setting up this flag (Qlikview 11). Please read the whole post, as you can read we've already selected this flag(bold characters). I attach the picture that we achieved selecting that flag.
