How are you doing the print?

If it is from an application some of the print methods include a number of copies parameter.

I am printing the report from Visual DataFlex application.  I found the property "NReportCopies" for Crystal object and I included it in the code, but still the system prints only one copy. The code is like this:

Object ocrRTInvoice Is A CrystalReport
    Property Integer piInvoiceNumber 0
    Set Report_Name To "RTInvoice.rpt"

    Procedure OnInitializeReport
        Integer iInvoiceNumber
        Get piInvoiceNumber     to iInvoiceNumber
        Set SelectionFormula    to ("{INVOICES.IDINVHEA} = " + String(iInvoiceNumber))
        Set NReportCopies        to 4
        Set Output_Destination  to CRW_PRINT_TO_PRINTER

Does your printer support multiple copies?
If not then you probably cant print it that way.
