Bar code label printing



It's possible that this question is outside the scope of Crystal Reports, but I thought I'd throw it out there anyway and see if someone has any insight on this.

I have a report that prints a label that includes some string fields and a barcode. The barcode field comes from a database and uses a Crystal barcode font. If I change the size of this barcode, it prints as expected on normal paper, but when I print this from a Dymo label (ultimately, this is our goal), the barcode's height/width/font doesn't change. I can alter the size of the string fields and have those changes appear on the label after it prints, but I can't change the size/width of the barcode from the Dymo label. It always come out the exact same size.

It's possible some sort of extra configuration needs to be done with the printer itself, but regarding Crystal Reports 2011, are there any known limitations of bar code printing with labels? Any suggestions on what the issue might be?
