    Ribbon Variants (2007)

    I'm in a computer lab with 20+ machines, all running Access 2007. There are occasional machine-to-machine differences in the ribbon, and I can't find anything about why they occur. I'm working from memory here, but this is one of them:

    In the Sort & Filter area of the ribbon, there's a large funnel icon and three small funnel-including icons to its right. On most of the machines, the three small icons are accompanied by text to their right. The text describes their function: Selection, Advanced, and Toggle Filter.

    But on some of the machines, the text does NOT appear next to the three small icons. There may be some other differences in the Filter area as well, but I don't recall for sure. I'm pretty sure that the students who experienced this were looking at a table and had selected a field.

    Who can shed some light on this?

    If the Access screen is not wide enough the the ribbon is adapted and some text or even icons can disappear.

    That was, indeed, the "problem." Thanks for the advice.
