terminal server issues with MS Access application

This Access application uses several main/detail subforms. (parent/child forms) When connecting through the network it works fine. BUT through the terminal server it scrambles some of the subforms, replacing fonts with cryptic symbols. We have checked to see if it is a font issue, and the terminal server has the same fonts as what is used on the forms. Any suggestions here on how to troubleshoot this issue would be GREAT.

If you login to terminal server from the console and run the application, do they show up correct?

So you can not run the application correctly on ther Terminal server?

Did you try playing with resolution, increasing/decreasing?

Have you checked the local setting/ language setting/ region setting etc. on terminal server to see if they match on the machine that the application is working?

I would try to re-install Office on the Terminal Server using Add/Remove programs.

hi, there

Sounds more like the Terminal Server setting here I'm thinking of the VT100 which is the default settings on the
server,

Looking into to see if there is a way to change to ASCII.

hi, again

To verify you could lock on the Terminal server using a VNC client or something similar or later try logon as a terminal user open the Office and see if it types it correctly.....

If all working ok, what version of the RDP do you have there. ?

I will be onsite shortly to try all suggestions. a note: there are many other Access applications on this server that are working properly. AND there are forms in the TROUBLED application which display correctly. I discovered it is not just the parent/child forms, another datasheet form is not working. IT seems so far to be limited just to SOME of the datasheet view forms and subforms.

hi all, thank you everyone for your input. i resolved the problem by rebuilding all the forms. i could not simply copy them. the network was very slow yesterday, appeared to be bogged down. perhaps some form of corruption happened which was picked up on the T server? anyway. if it continues to happen.....thanks not sure how to distribute the points. oh here is something. the Terminal server is running MS Office 2003, the rest of the network 2002 with ACCESS applications built in 2000 and 97 format. (in my opinion more stable)
