I'm working with an old database and a report worked fine with Access 2010.  But using Access 2013 the copy on the report is all messed up an unreadable.

I've attached a clip from the report using 2010 and another one using 2013.  Can someone tell me why this might be happening?

A little odd....are you working with the same copy of the database file, or two different copies?

Same copy.  Two different computers, one with 2010 and the other with 2013.

It appears that the 2013 report has the controls too narrow.
Open the report in the design view or layout view and widen the controls.

Here is something really strange.  I changed the font to Arial.  It was MS Sans Serif.  I did not have to widen the controls.  And now the report looks fine.  But I have a new issue now and will post a new topic.

Thank you for the feedback.  Then, the issue is in the default fonts between the versions.

I guess so.  But I really don't understand why the font would make a difference.

MS Sans Serif I believe is an old raster font where as Arial is a True Type font and will look the same no matter where displayed.
