Cannot see data unless zoom is less than 100% plus column width problems

Hi Experts

I have just installed my Excel 2007 onto Windows 8.1 and am having some issues .
I have attached a pricelist workbook (single sheet).
On my machine I can only view info in the cells if the zoom is set to less than 100% (e.g. 99.9)
If I go back to 100% the data becomes invisible.
Also, if I do an autofit column width (select all cells and double click between the letters on the column letters) the columns are jumping to max width (255 pixels).
I have deleted all blank rows and all blank columns and then saved- same problem.
I have also done a "=len()" on each to ensure there is no extra characters.

I suppose it may just be a local issue on my machine but if I could get some feedback that would be great.

Many thanks

Nick

Additional note on this - if I copy and paste onto a new workbook, I have the same problem.
However, if I copy and paste as values - the problem goes away......
Must be in the formatting ...????

It might be the font your are using.  It looks good on a MAC.  What font are you using?

Thanks

None of those issues viewing your file on my machine.

I have saved the file at 99.9%
Have you both tried setting back to 100%

@JC - I think you've called it.
If I change the font, all the issues go away.
Very strange.
And good call.
