We have changed the screen resolution to no avail, applied the latest update of access, checked the netframework version as directed by the program to no avail. Windows 7 software is up to date.

Usually, it's one of three things:

1. DPI settings in windows - This will make text larger at a given resolution and throw off controls and spacing.

2. Screen resolution.

3. Video drivers.

  #3 is not the problem it once was, and given you comment, my money would be on #1.    It's set as part of the display adapter properties.

Works Jim. I set the DPI up to the highest and changed the text size to smaller. Thanks very much.
Is there something I should do now to compliment your assistance? Tim Kelly
