How to add a font to the default font set ?


Issue: a customer of mine is an engineering firm and needs to use a custom font (GDT engineering symbols of course ) an Access database.
The font is installed on the machine.
In Character Map ( Accessories , then System Tools) I can see the font. However the default font is Ariel , and so when I paste the chosen symbol into the Access text box ( or anywhere else) it changes into another letter- I assume based on an Ariel number match.
The only work around I can think of is to add these symbols into Ariel.
Can this be done ? Any other work arounds ?

Many thanks !

I never use Access myself, but I suspect you will have to manually apply your custom font to the whole field, which may or may not be helpful.

If I remember correctly, you have also asked this question in a Microsoft TechNet forum. It's best to let people know that you posted the same, or a similar, question in several places, and include a link to the "other" thread.
