spreadsheet

By mikehuffar ·
The same spreadsheet is opened buy multiple users one at a time, one user opens the spreadsheet to find one of the rows with an extreme row height(409.5) everyone else that opens the spreadsheet sees that row correctly(16.5). Any ideas?

Believe it or not having different monitors sizes and different video cards will affect your spreadsheet(s). we had a case where all 15" monitors were fine, but when someone with a 17" monitor (same video card) most of the fields were returning ######## and needed to be resized everytime.

Recommendation: Verify the correct videodrivers are installed and see if it makes a difference on monitor size of video. If this is a NEW problem, what was done differently before it was acting up.

Hope this help....

Thanks for the input, but this is a row height problem vs. a column width issue.

1. Verify that the font in question is installed on the computer with the problem. To rule out a font problem, if it is not already, set the font to Arial.

2. Verify that a printer is set up for the computer with the problem (you would be surprised how many programs go crazy if you don't have a printer set up.) If the printer is different from that on the computers without problems, try setting another printer of the same type as on the other computers on the computer with the problem, and set that printer as the default. Excel adjusts the display based on the printer driver.

3. Try logging in on the problem machine as a user that has never logged in on that machine before, to force windows to set up a new Office user. If that fixes the problem, you can either delete the profile for the main user of the computer, so he starts over, or you can delete a portion of the HKCU/Software/Microsoft/Office structure Note that this is the current user settings, not the HKLM settings! If you delete all the office settings for the user, office will recreate it when you restart office. If you delete just part, you have to know what you are doing, since the presence of some office settings for the user will prevent office from repopulating the rest. The binary settings tend to be the ones that corrupt (sorry, don't remember the key by heart.)
