 Double byte characters in reports

Ave,

I'm using Chinese Star 97 on a complete English
Windows95-Office97 environment.

I have made a table with in one field chinese
charaters, and in the others fields 'normal'
text. Based on this table I created a form
with the idea of printing all the characters
on one single A4 page. Everything looks nice
when I switch to preview. I get something like:

(letters represent chinese characters)

A B C D E F G H I
J K L M N O P Q R

But when I print this, I only get the first
character. All the other characters are printed
only partially, or not at all.

In order to trace the cause of this error, I
made the border of the text boxes solid. What I
see is a nice 1cm x 1cm text box for the first
character, but from the second one on, they
become larger (2cm x 2cm), resulting in
overlapping of the different boxes.

Two questions:
1) why does the form look nice on screen, but
   not when printed? (I tried both printout
   on paper and printout in a pdf file)
2) what is going on and how can I get it right?

Greetings and thanks in advance,

--

Access prior to 2000 does not handle Unicode very well unless you are

a) on a Far East system
b) using an FE version of Windows
c) have the db compacted into an FE collating order
