Additional line breaks appearing on Excel files when opened on laptops, no problem on desktops!

Issues with formatting on most excel sheets. Files are located on network server.  When viewing or printing sheets on laptops, the page break seems to be pushed down by about 2 cells(rows) on each page or additional page (or something like nbsp which probably don't apply to Excel docs)  breaks are added. This only happens on laptops, workstations accessing the same files on the network are fine. Laptops has been compared with desktops and the OS (Windows 7 64bit Pro), print settings, driver versions and Microsoft Office versions are all identical.

Thank you!

If I pull the page break down on the file as it appears on the laptops and save and open this file on a desktop, the problem follows to the desktop (though the file looks good on the laptop for now).

I suggest that you post a non-confidential sample here to see how other desktops and laptops deal with it.

Thank you!  Actually, I think I may have found what is wrong, perhaps its not an extra line break but rather perhaps differents fonts between the systems?

Is there a way I can determine what fonts are being used in an Excel 2010 document? The document is quite large (a sales paper) with multiple fonts and sizes being used.

Thanks again!

Problem solved!  It ended up being the DPI specified in Windows on the problem machine.  By setting this value top be the same on each machine (desktop was set to Small and laptop was set to Medium) the spacing issue was corrected.
