Changing the width of a printer file

The maximum width of a printer file is 378. I want to print PDF417 code and need a width of 1,500. If the print is split into several lines, there are problems with character line code. How do I solve this?

You will have to use the AFP Toolbox and make a call to the multiline function (begin line, end line), but the maximum width is, "Up to 1850 text characters, 1720 ASCII numeric digits, or 1108 bytes of binary data per symbol."
