Reading Barcodes from Crystal

The printer is a 203dpi device and supports mechanical adjustment of the head pressure on the label stock. I have gotten the scanner to read the label now by increasing the font size of the barcode from 14 to 22 point and gradually increasing the head pressure. Looking at the labels printed it is obvious that some of the narrower lines were almost indistinguishable before or there weren't enough dots on the stock to be consistent from the top to the bottom of the barcode. It is better now and the scanner picks it up with no adjustment to it. Thanks to all. -Karl

Still, trying to scan the resultant barcode into Excel, yields nothing. It cannot read the code. I tried other known good barcodes and the scanner can read them, so the scanner is OK. Anything else I am missing here? The label is being printed on a TTR (thermal transfer) printer on polyester white stock.
