I have performed all of the upgrades to Snow Leopard (including the 10.6.1).

I created an Excel document in Office for the Mac and created a PDF, when a Windows user prints the document all of the boarders, etc came out fine but all the typed words were symbols (!#$%, etc). However, it looks fine on their screen (Windows) and even prints fine from the Mac.

I have done this in the past with 10.5.x and I did not have any issues, it seems to be related to Snow Leopard.

I have checked all the updates for Office and the Mac but it tells me I am totally up to date.

Any suggestions?

P.S. The original Excel document I created on the Mac prints fine in Office for the Mac or Windows.

QUOTE Thanks
