    Unanswered: OLE Image Zoom - Displays Differently on Server vs. Workstation

    This one has me stumped.

    I have a database in which the user can copy and paste images into an OLE Object field on a form.
    Within the form, the Bound Object Frame properties 'Size Mode' is set to zoom.

    -- All is good, and it works fine on the clients workstation. The picture (WMF) re-sizes and acts as it should.

    Here's the kicker:
    I have installed the exact database on a server on our network (same version of access and same service pack) and the picture (WMF) shows distorted and looks as if the 'Size Mode' Property is set to Stretch. I double checked the size mode properties and they are still set at 'Zoom'.

    So, when I run Access on the Server (Windows Server 2003 Ent. SP1) the image is distorted, yet when I run Access on the Client (XP Pro 2002 SP2) the image is fine. (Same database, same Access, Different OS) .

    Does anyone have a clue as to why this would happen or how to resolve this issue?

    I have attached a side-by-side comparison of the issue.
