Font Size Vista vs XP in Report or Form

P: n/a
I have a database in Access 2003 that was originally developed using
XP. When the database is opened on a Vista computer, the font size in
a report or form is bigger. (The reports/forms don't look right
anymore since the words are cut off, word wrapping etc..) However,
opening the same database in XP, you don't have that issue.

I saw the issue before between 2 xp computers where the font size was
slightly different. It turns out that by uninstalling an HP font
pack, and obtaining the original windows fonts, the issue was
resolved.

However, I don't believe I've installed any font packs on the Vista
computer. I also set the dpi to the standard 96.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

I would go to the printer mfg site and see if they have a Vista
compatible driver.
