Label Software fit the barcode size automatically from Excel


I want to link data from an excel sheet to generate the barcodes in the automation Label Software.
How can I get the exact fit barcode size in my label because I have different values so the barcode size will be different?
I want the software to calculate automatically the size of the barcode and make these different sizes fit the label.
In another word, it is not logical to export 100 values for ex. from an excel sheet and these values I must calculate the size for each one and one by one.

When you are using the Barcode Label Software to link variable data from Excel, size the label so that the largest barcodes will fit and all of the other barcodes will then also fit. There is no auto-size option because that would produce different X Dimensions which could cause scanner errors. You can decrease the size of the barcode by lowering the X Dimension to the lowest value that your scanner can read.

If you adjust the properties of the barcode in the label and save it, it will save the settings. If you do not save the label it will not save the settings.

thanks for the quick respond
let's say the largest x dimension is 14 for ex. it's possible to save this value so every time I link to excel it will size it automatically to 14 ?
