Access Native MILS Size Specification and Size

I asked a barcode verification service to verify the Code 39 barcodes we generated met our specifications. I generated the barcodes using the IDAutomation Native Linear Barcode Generator for Microsoft Access. The application is in Access 2013.

The barcode verification service is saying that the Code 39 barcodes I generated (using MIL size 8) were a little over 9 1000ths of an inch and those I generated (using MIL size 10) were a little over 12 1000ths of an inch.

I was wondering why the MIL size I'm specifying doesn't match what is printed and what I can do to correct this.

Operating System: Windows

Application: Access 2013

Referring to steps 15 and 16 of the Barcode Integration Tutorial for the Access Native Barcode Generator, it is recommended that the printer's DPI (dots per inch resolution) be set to 600 (to gain greater control over the size of the barcodes or to create very small symbols). If this is not the printer DPI being used, it will be necessary to adjust settings until the desired MILS is attained* (by trial and error).

Generally, the MILS parameter may be adjusted, as described in the respective Access Native Function.

*Since printers and implementations vary widely, IDAutomation cannot provide definite settings for a specific implementation, beyond what has been recommended in the Tutorial and above.
