    Are you simply printing the form, or are you creating a report from it and then printing?

    Re: Vertical print disappears (2002 SP2)

    Just printing the form. I made up a few dummy forms and they all do the same thing. I tried it on 2 other Dbs on this machine, same result. I tried it on the same Dbs on other machines and the text displays just fine. So I guess I have something set on this machine - but I havn't got a clue what it could be.

    Are you resizing the control to properly display the text vertically?

    That sounds suspiciously like a print driver problem - are you using the same printer on other machines?

    Yep, even something simple like 'Hi' in a large label or text box can't be seen

    Would have been too easy. Same printer on other 2 machines - with the same printer driver! Also the text disappears in Normal & Preview mode, not just when being printed. The only difference is that this machine has Access 2002 - but saves to Access 2000 file format. The other machines have Access 2000. Wierd eh?

    It works in 2002 (in 2000 format) on my machine. are you sure you're using the same *version* of the printer driver?

    Re: Vertical print disappears (2002 SP2)

    Yes it is the same driver. I have the driver stored on my HD and install the same driver on each machine from a copy of that file. But I fear I didn't make my original question clear enough. The text doesn't even display in vertical mode, let alone print. Apart from this Access is working fine.
    I just can't think of any setting that could be causing this.

    Have you tried a Detect and Repair (from the Help menu) on the problem machine?

    Didn't even know that existed. Neat. Tried it, but no difference. Sure is frustrating.

    What font are you using? Do you have Large Fonts set on?

    Charlotte & Hans, I appreciate your hanging in there with suggestions. I am at my wits end.
    I've tried heaps of fonts, including 'System'. All to no avail, can't see an of them with the Vertical property set.
    I don't have large fonts set, the setting is Normal fonts.
    I just tried a re-install of Office. Made no difference.
    Regards,
    Peter

    I'm afraid I'm stumped. I guess the only thing left is a clean reinstall of the whole PC (format hard disk, reinstall Windows, reinstall applications etc.)

    Re: Vertical print disappears (2002 SP2)

    Before you give up entirely and reformat your hard drive, it seems to me there were some issues with too many fonts, and also with a missing font that I don't remember the name of. I'll do a search and modify this post if I can dredge up either problem. <font color=red>No Luck so far - BTW, what OS is your workstation running on, and are the other workstations that work OK on the same version?</font color=red>
