Thank you for your post.
Go into Preview Mode. This displays exactly what is being sent to the printer. If it is missing the same words, then we can take a closer look at the Layout. For example, the width of the field on the Layout would drop words if the right side extended beyond the page boundaries. Anything you can provide to help replicate the problem would be appreciated.
1) Font problem.
a) Does the field in the "data entry" layout has exactly the same font than in the "print" layout?
If yes (maybe it's the same) ...
... b) Try with an other font.
If an other Font is printing correctly ...
... c) This font was corrupt (change it) or the os (which one? "xps" means you have Windows?) has a name conflict problem, or you are using PostScript fonts ...
2) Corrupted layout. How old is the file? It is a converted file or a native file?
3) Never use FileMaker Pro 7, it's over-buggy (sorry to say that, TSGall, but it is sadly true), update it!
