Are you both using the same transform anchor point in the Transform panel?

two causes for this:
1. Your zero point for x and y is not at the upper left corner of the page.
2. You rotated the view of the spread in the pages panel.
Then positioning objects after coordinates is a drag because of a bug.
Before suggesting anything else:
Do you work with a facing-pages document?
Did you inspect the rulers—the context menu by right-clicking the horizontal ruler?
What does it say? "Ruler per Page", "Ruler per Spread" or "Ruler at Spine"?
You can change the zero point if "Ruler per Page" or "Ruler per Spread" is set.
Then reset the zero point to default with a double click in the field where horizontal and vertical rulers meet.
It turns out that the problem was that the X and Y points were not set the same
Thank you for the help and quick response.
so the zero point ( in relation to the upper left corner of the page ) was at a different position compared to the one of your co-worker? That's the simplest cause for differences in positioning objects.
Good, that this solved…
