We have two different computers. Both are running windows 7 with Office 2010.  
We have a form with a label on it using Calibri font 14 bold.  On one machine the entire text displays and on the other machine the last letter is cut off.  This is in both form view and design view. Both computers are using a screen resolution of 1440 X 900.

What else would cause a difference between the rendering of the form on these two computers?

In general I am with the previous experts...

Try simply making the label bigger until it displays correctly on all machines.
