    Fonts out of control (AXP 10.2627.2625)

    Click Tools | Options, then select the Datasheet tab. The Font selection is empty (Null)! The dropdown is also empty!

    This points to a registry problem - anyone have a clue? (this used to work in A2K).

    Do you have a printer installed?
    Word does some funnies re fonts when there is no printer installed maybe Access as well???...

    Re: Fonts out of control (AXP 10.2627.2625) FIXED!

    Thanks Steve - good guess! The 'printer assignment' was one of the items in the KB, pointed out by MSFT support just today. This was not the cause of my problem however.

    The cause is TOO MUCH FONTS! Access can only handle so many megs of fonts; more than 'the limit', and it just bails. I dumped some huge fonts that IE downloaded, and i am back in business.

    'The limit' apparently varies with each machine, and there is no applet that tells how close to the limit one is.
