Holes in flange dont match holes in toilet!

My father is installing a new toilet and has discovered that the holes in the toilet do not match with the holes in the flange. Has anyone else had this problem? What should be done to fix the problem. Thanks

Toilet flanges and the holes in the base of the bowl are standard. All are interchangeable. If they don't line up, then your flange isn't rotated properly with reference to the back wall behind the toilet.

I'd love to see a picture of this one.

Did you guys install the flange or was it an existing flange?

If you just installed it that could be the trouble might not be lined up properly.

Was there an existing toilet there that was removed to install new?
