Novice: Requires knowledge of the user interface on single-user computers.
This article applies to a Microsoft Access database (.mdb) and to a Microsoft Access project (.adp).
On a computer that is running Windows 98, when you print text that includes the euro symbol from a table in Datasheet view to any Hewlett-Packard printer, the euro symbol may be printed as expected, may not be printed at all, or may be printed as just a dot, even though print preview displays the euro symbol properly.
NOTE: From computers running Windows NT and Windows 2000, the euro symbol is printed correctly on Hewlett-Packard printers.
To resolve this problem, obtain Microsoft Office 2000 Service Release 1/1a (SR-1/SR-1a).
For additional information and to obtain SR-1/SR-1a, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
245025 How to obtain and install the Microsoft Office 2000 SR-1/SR-1a update
To temporarily work around this problem, use a nonresident font, like Tahoma.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section. This problem was corrected in Microsoft Office 2000 SR-1/SR-1a.
Steps to reproduce the problem
- On a computer running Windows 98, create a new Access table.
- Add a Currency field and change the Format property of the Currency field to Euro.
- View the table in Datasheet view.
- Type a few numbers.
- On the File menu, click Print Preview. Note that the preview looks as expected.
- On the File menu, click Print. Select any Hewlett-Packard printer. Note that when you use the default font, the euro symbol isn't printed.
