          Thank you for your post.

          What fonts were you using in Windows 98?  Do those same fonts exist in Windows 7?  If not, then FileMaker Pro will try to match up the font to the closest font.

          Try selecting the contents of the field, pull down the Format menu and select Font ->... and select the font you want to use.  Do the values then show correctly?
