Version Information
 Version Added:  Excel 2007



expression   A variable that represents a ThreeDFormat object.


NameRequired/OptionalData TypeDescription
IncrementRequiredSingleSpecifies how much (in degrees) the rotation of the shape around the z-axis is to be changed. Can be a value from – 90 through 90. A positive value tilts the shape to the left; a negative value tilts it to the right.


Use the RotationZ property to set the absolute rotation of the shape around the z-axis.

To change the rotation of a shape around the z-axis, use the IncrementRotation method.

You cannot adjust the rotation around the z-axis of the specified shape past the upper or lower limit for the RotationZ property (90 degrees to – 90 degrees). For example, if the RotationZ property is initially set to 80 and you specify 40 for the Increment argument, the resulting rotation will be 90 (the upper limit for the RotationZ property) instead of 120.
