Row height - point size and pixels

Hello,

I'm having a strange problem. I have Excel 2007 installed on multiple machines in an office. On nearly every computer, a row height of 1 pixel corresponds to 0.75 points. However, on one system (a Dell laptop), a row height of 1 pixel is corresponding to 0.6 points.

This ends up causing a lot of trouble when moving workbooks between systems! I've tried searching both here and Google, and 1 pixel = 0.75 points seems to be the default settings, but how do I change that? Why would one of my computers have 1 pixel = 0.6 points?


Thank you!

The number of points in a pixel varies with screen height and the vertical resolution, no?

That's what I thought too, but (at least with windows XP) that doesn't seem to be it. I tried changing the screen resolution on an XP machine from 1280x1024 to 1280x768 and it made no difference. The affected laptop runs Win7, but is currently at home (and I'm in the office). I'll have to try on there, but if it doesn't work on XP, I doubt it would on 7.
