    hi guys
    can anyone tell me please
    (1) i want to print on both sides of paper, and can see the manual duplex option,
    and the print odd / even pages only, but Where is the print in REVERSE order needed on the second pass ?
    Forex i send doc thru printing Odd pages only, then turn bundle round in printer, but its all in
    Last page on top order, so when next telling it print Even pages on other side, i need the Reverse
    last-to-first number order. Cant see that Option. it is in Open Office and others.

    (2) how to "Import Text from File" (apart from Copy / Paste) ?
    i see buttons for "import Picture", and "Create Text Box" etc, but no "Import Text File"n ??

    thanks for any help !

    That is generally found on the printer setup, I believe, as it depends if the paper comes out face up or face down.

    Edited to clarify

    Check the Options button:

    In Word 97-2003: Insert | File...

    In Word 2007, it takes more mouse clicks, of course:
    • Activate the Insert tab of the ribbon.
    • Click the dropdown arrow on the right hand side of the Object button in the Text section.
    • Click Text from File.

    ***thanks for reply Lief. i dont seem to have the same Print Options page as you show.
    my msword is "home and student", is that different from "standard 2007" ?
    (ive got a "manual duplex" option, or print only odd/even).

    on my Print page, bottom left, there is Options, which leads to a list including "Advanced",
    and therein a chance to "print in reverse order",
    However (strange) when that is ticked, the pages come out forward order,
    and when un-ticked, come out reverse !

    ***never mind, at least ive got some control now, so can proceed with the job. many thanks

    This will be due to interactions between Word, your printer, and your printer driver.
    Microsoft has no way of knowing what order the physical paper will be in as it emerges from the printer.

    ***well at least i can do the job now, strange M$ should bury that option,
    rather than put in near the "manual duplex" settings.

    do you know if my "home/student" has different appearance to the page Leif showed above ?
    thanks stuart.

    I believe that the home/student version of Microsoft Office contains identical programs to the other versions.
    What version of Microsoft Word do you have?

    There is no difference between the various editions of Office/Word, but there might be between versions of Office/Word. Leif's screenshot is for Word 2002 and 2003, it will no doubt look different in Word 2007.
