Calculate width of printed text  in mm (if possible)

Last Modified: 2020-03-23

I am using Microsoft Access.  I am using a SDK to print directly to a Brother labeller  (one of 3 templates)

In this case, the label will only have one field.   My code will populate that field.

In order for my app to choose the appropriate  label template,  I must first calculate the printed width of my data and then choose the appropriate template.

So, how do I calculate the width of that printed text in mm (if possible) ?

ps.  I know that  many of you are helping others,  just because..       I hope your good Karma comes back to you and your loved ones in these difficult times.
