Windows 7: Word Doc Font Changes Windows 7

Word Doc Font Changes Windows 7

I just bought a new HP 1102w printer and set it up without issue. Tried to print my resume from both my new Laptop which runs Windows 7 and my XP desktop. The document was not changed before I put it on a USB and loaded on the W7 laptop.

When I open the 2003 Word Doc in Windows 7, the fonts and page breaks are different than when I open the very same document on my XP desktop. I want to ensure that if I create a document, especially a resume, that it remains in tact on both machines/printers.

I believe Windows 7 has the same fonts as my XP does.

Please help me to resolve this.

- Do both PCs have MS Word 2003?
- What font are you using?

All documents are based upon a template. Rename the file "normal.dot" to "normal.bak" on Windows 7 PC. Find the file "normal.dot" on the XP and copy it to Windows 7. Lemme know if that does the trick.

Just realized I might not have the service pack 3 for windows 2003 on my laptop. Going to try that first. Thanks so much for the quick replies and for the assistance. This is much appreciated. E

I found them and did as advised but this did not work. Do I delete the .bak file? Also, my templates are in a roaming directory? c:user\computer name\App Data\Roaming\Microsoft Templates....
