    I have a report with an OLE bound frame.

    A bitmap has been pasted into the bound field.

    The bitmap displays differently on different computers.

    What can I do to work out why the display is different on different
    computers?

    Can you elaborate on what you mean by "different"?

    The location of the bitmap within the OLE control is different.

    It may be that the application which is rendering the bitmap is different on
    the two computers is different, or it may just be the printer driver.

    I don't have either computer onsite, so I'm looking for
    code/script/questions I can ask.

    The user thought that the two computers were identical, because
    they were bought together. But it turns out one is using Office
    2003 and the other is not.

    I've checked on my own computer with A97, 2K, 2K2, 2K3 installed,
    and A2000/A2003 display identical copies of the report, so it
    doesn't appear to be "just" the version of Office.

    Do you have any suggestions for

    Determining which application is rendering the picture?
    Finding OLE information saved in the record?
    Finding information about the default printer driver?
    or
    Anything which might be relevant to the way the picture is rendered on the
    report?
