    Duplex Printing (Word 97 SR2)

    Since we've switched from WordPerfect to Word, we were not able to control printing duplex documents. For example, the resulting merged document with 10 pages, each record, the first 2 pages we'd like to print non-duplex and the rest 8 pages duplex, then the rest of the records follow the same pattern.

    We do have a printer that can print duplex, but can't seem to control this within Word.

    I do appreciate any help regarding this matter.

    Thanks,
    --Maria

    I'm not too sure where you are having the difficulty, but try the following.

    Set a section break between pages one and two, and format th enew section to start on Odd-Page. Do the same for the third page. You should now have 3 setcions, each starting on an odd page. You can then set the printer to duplex mode and the final section (from page 3 on) should print duplex, whilst the first two pages should print on 2 single sheets.

    Hope that is of help.

    Oh ok. Just to make sure I understand, all I have to do is set the pages I'd like to print non-duplex to odd and that will cure it all?

    Thanks

    It should work, if tthe printer is set up correctly. If it does not post back.
