Headers and Footers in MS Word 2003 and the same in MS Word 2007

I created a document in MS Word 2007 on a Vista PC. The document has Headers and Footers and it prints very well on an HP LaserJet CP1215 printer. I then copied it onto a flash drive and printed it on a WinXP PC running Word 2003 and printing to an HP LaserLet 1320 printer. When I did, the formatting was not exactly the same. For example, the footer was much higher on the page than I would expect and all atempts to adjust it further down the page failed. How do I adjust the Word 2007 document footer in a Word 2003 version?

K*B,

Are you saving your document as .DOCX? If so you could try saving it as .DOC and see if that makes any difference. (Or vice versa, .DOCX in place of .DOC)

I don't know what happened there, I only posted the reply once!

I agree with Peter's suggestion but it also occurred to me that the margins might be set differently in each case so maybe worth checking what the default is on both versions/machines

I'd certainly be interested as to what you find is the reason

Cheers
