duplex printing a Crystal Reports subreport with VB6

Is it possible to duplex-print a Crystal Reports subreport only (and have the rest of the main report print in simplex) using VB6? I realize I could set the entire report to print in duplex and then add blank pages after the sections I want to be in simplex (i.e. simulate simplex printing with blank pages), but I’m also wanting to print the subreport from a printer bin/tray different than the one I use for the main report. For this reason, I’m trying to use VB6 to set my printing options programmatically. I have CR 8.5 and am using an ICRDesigner object in Visual Basic.

Thanks in advance.

No it is not possible.  A Crystal Report must all be printed the same.  

Just as you can't mix landscape and portrait in a single report, you can't mix simplex and duplex.

mlmcc,

And this is the case regardless of the version of CR or VB? I'm wondering if there are any differences with CR 9 or the version of CR in .NET?

Thanks.
