    I have Office 2007 Basic; my son has Office 2007 Educational version;
    both Windows 7.

    Microsoft's says that Office 2007 has Arial Rounded, but it is missing
    on both PCs. Could not find where to install additional fonts from
    installation DVD. Could not find from Internet search. Tried Repair
    Install, this did not help.

    This is my first visit to this newsgroup. Any advice?

    Please note fonts are dependent on the make and model of your
    printer. If you have a laser printer with PCL5 or PCL6 and PS
    capability then you are likely to have most of the fonts on Office
    2007. Please tell us what is the make & Model of your printer.

    For starters, ignore any venom-spewing trolls who reply to your posts.
    Their information isn't always trustworthy.

    And as to the font issue:

    According to this:

    http://www.microsoft.com/typography/fonts/product.aspx?PID=148

    Arial MT Rounded Bold is included in Office 2007, not Arial Rounded.

    If a document calls for one and you have the other, Windows may
    substitute for you, or it may not (especially since one's bold and the
    other isn't).

    Apart from that, some Office fonts are installed only if you choose
    certain options. I don't if Arial MT Rounded Bold is one of these or
    not, but if you look in Control Panel, Fonts you can see for yourself
    what's installed on your computer.

    Sorry, I was sloppy in identifying the font. We don't have either.

    Applications are warning about Arial MT Rounded Bold not being
    available, and offering to replace it with another font, which I do not
    want to do since I have documents going back many years which use it.

    It was the warnings that made me realize that the font was missing from
    my new PC.

    I know that it is not installed: I checked. I don't have every
    possible Office component installed, e.g. an oriental Office font. My
    new PC is a Dell and has an OEM version of Office Basic, and Dell did
    the install -- but it is not obvious to me that this font would
    rationally be tied to any component which is not installed.

    I suppose I could get the font from my old version of Office 2003, but
    it would not be the latest version of the font, I am sure.

    Any specific suggestions of where we can go from here? If the missing
    font is tied to a specific component, it would be helpful to know which.
    Maybe I'll have to try Dell support, but user communities are usually
    more helpful than big corporations. It may seem a minor issue, but as I
    said earlier, I have a *lot* of old documents that use it, and font
    substitution does not always have pleasant consequences.

    OK, no problem.

    And who wants to deal with all the possible problems that font substition
    might cause? With you 100%

    Have a look here:
    http://www.microsoft.com/typography/fonts/font.aspx?FMID=918

    According to that, they're both v 1.51, so you're probably good to go if
    you've still got the version from 2003 around. And the version change
    since '97 has been from 1.50 to 1.51 I'd bet the only change was the
    addition of the Euro symbol, or possibly the change from a plain TT font to
    OT/Opentype format.

    I distinctly remember it being so in a past Office version but can't for
    the life of me remember which version or which app added it. Ah well.
    History now. IAC, I'd say installing the one from Office 2003 is all you
    need to sort things out.

    Arial Rounded Bold is included on both of my installation CDs (I don't have
    Office Basic or Educational but I do have Home and Student and also Small
    Business Edition that I checked.)

    You would either need to do a repair install of Office and have it include
    all the fonts or you can do this:

    Place your DVD in the drive and then start Windows Explorer. Ensure that
    you can see extensions for known file types (if you need help setting that
    up let us know.)

    Browse down to the folder on the disk to the proper cab file. Now the cab
    file and folder it is stored in will be named differently for each version
    of Office but for Home and Student the folder is named "HomeStudentr.WW"
    and the cab file that the fonts are located in is called "HomeSrWW.cab" My
    Small Business version's folder is "SmallBusinessr.WW" and the cab file is
    "SMBrWW.cab" so you should be able to figure out which folder and cab file
    your TTF fonts are located in. Once you find the folder and cab file click
    on the cab file. You should see a listing of all the enclosed files within
    the cab file. You are looking for this file "ARLRDBD.TTF" When you find
    that file right click on it. Left click Extract and tell the next window
    where you want to place the file. I would use the Windows\Fonts folder.
    When the font is extracted to that folder it may automatically be installed.
    If not you can use the add fonts to add the font to the computer. You only
    need to extract onto one computer and can then simply copy the file to the
    other computer and install it.

    Hope this helps, let us know.

    Did a repair install. It did not install the missing font.

    Well, I searched the CAB files, and did not find it. Which does not
    mean it is not in one of them: it just means that I could not find it.

    I eventually "fixed" the problem by copying over the font from my older,
    Office 2003 system. That was version 1.50 instead of Office 2007's
    version 1.51. I'll have to be satisfied with this: still, I find it
    extremely puzzling to find a font missing not only in Dell's OEM Office,
    but also in a copy of Office sold by a major computer store.

    Either way, glad you got it fixed.
