Windows 7: excel 2010 document looks different on work PC

excel 2010 document looks different on work PC

My wife asked me to create an excel document for her at home on my PC which I duly did but she tells me that the nice layout I had produced looks a mess on her work PC which is also running version 2010. I'm in a quandary as to why this has happened and how to fix this please.
I did embed the fonts so no issue there just the look of the document.

This might be good to read Why does the document look different? - Office Watch

Also compare the DPI setting on the 2 PC's. In Windows do a search for DPI.

It's hard to guess what "looks a mess" means. A better description would help.
