I have an ACCESS 2 application that allows user to choose a worker from a list and it works - straight forward.  The problem is that after setting up the application on one specific computer - there when I call up the list of people
just a blank appears i.e. a blank, small, "one line" rectangular box  -  on all other computers all works well and the list appears correctly.  What can be done ?  By the way I've often experienced problems with fonts, dates when working on different computers with the same ACCESS 2 appication = Paul Clapper in Israel

My guess is that that computer has a old video driver or graphics card. I've run into the same types of things and this always fixed it. For example, in Access97 a user could see the tabs of the tab control on one form, but not on another form in the same database! Upgrading their hardware solved the problem!

Good luck!
