> You could put a label on the form and enter "12345678901234567890" and use it as a ruler for the textboxes.

I said my idea without testing it, and when I read your answer (just before giving you rate ;) , I decide to test it) and your idea neither mine will work.

I had put a label on the form 1234567890, the width was 72 pixel
I create a textbox on the form and make its width to 72 and put 1234567890 in the value, it gives ********

Label takes 72pixel to display 1234567890
Textbox takes 81 pixel to display the same

so I guess the actual size of the character is different in report and on form.
