Fields moving when report opens - only on one computer

I have imported a document form into my report detail in Design view. It is a one page form with about 15 spaces for data in the header. My data base calculates the header data that should show in each space. I sent the document form to the back and inserted text fields over the spaces on the form that need data. The text controls do not show but when the form is opened the data shows in the correct space over the form. This works on all my users computers except one. On that computer the text (control) moves away form the intended space. Some times by an inch or more. The form and the text controls are the only objects in the detail area of the report.

What could be causing this shift only on one computer. Is there a way to freeze the text controls? Or, if I group the document form and text controls would that lock in the position of the text controls? Or, ?


RE: Fields moving when report opens - only on one computer

Can we assume the controls on the report are stationary and the image changes? Are all of the PCs using the same screen resolution?
