ActiveX barcode width in MS Access is too long

I am trying to create a barcode 128 to print on a label. The data contained in the bar code should be about 12 digits and the print label is 10 cm width. I am using the IDAutomation ActiveX component on an MS Access report.

Please see attached design from my access report, as you can see it looks like that the bar code needs about 13 cm to show complete in this design view??
Thanks for help

Operating System: Windows 7

Application: MS Access

What is the data contained in this particular barcode/expected value of the barcode scan?

How are you passing the formula to the control? Can you attach a screenshot of how the field is passed to the control?

When viewing the barcode in Layout View, is it still a large barcode? If so, it may not be reading the expected data and using another field or value to produce the large barcode.

As a test, you may directly input the expected value into the DataToEncode of the control to verify the barcode.

Example:
If the expected value is TodayIsTuesday, enter it directly into the DataToEncode property text box and compare this barcode to the barcode that you receive when running your report (large barcode). If it is different, then something else other than the expected value is encoded for that long barcode.
