A document that was one page in Word 2000 is now two in Word 2003 and it has
not been edited. Formatting on both documents (i.e. font and spacing) are
identical. Why is it doing this and how do I fix it? I'm in the middle of a
quarterly report and need immediate resolution. PLEASE HELP!!

The document created in both 2000 and 2003 have the identical printer default
so there should be no printer drivers issues. Any other ideas?

Exactly the same printer driver, i.e. same OS, same driver version from same
driver disk?

and *exactly* the same font file versions - though I suspect it will be the
printer driver that effects the difference?

Hi Barbara,

The graphics engine for Office changed after Office 2000.
This can affect some of the layout rendering if you're trying
to position to fit a page very tightly.

As mentioned in the text reflow link on the other page Word
is not a 'page layout' software package.

You may want to try using the File=>Print Zoom scaling option
if you can't adjust the margins in File=>Page Setup a tad or two
if you're just slightly spilling over onto the next page, or if
you turn on formatting marks (paragraph icon on the toolbar)
see if there's a blank paragraph mark at the end of the document
on the 2nd page by itself. If so, you may not be able to delete
it but you may be able to select it and apply a 2pt font formatting
to it.

======
