I recently moved MS Office 2003 from an old computer to a new one. Now when opening an Excel spreadsheet located on a server the font is wrong. The font is TW condensed 8, but it displays and prints in a larger font. TW condensed does not show up in the font drop down box. All other computers using the same MS Office software work fine! What happened?

Sounds like you are missing that font on the new PC. If you downloaded it from somewhere, you'll need to do the same on this PC. If it was "just there" or you can't find it... then copy the ttf file to the new machine and install it.


go to c:\windows\fonts find that particular font file and copy over to the new pc.

Thanks. That was it. Finding that the fonts were different was a surprise.
