Designating a printer tray

I am creating two different Crystal reports (8.5) that I need to go to a specific production printer and then one needs to always print from Tray 2 and one always print from tray 3 -- so it's printed on different colored paper.

Is there a way to do this directly in Crystal? Or does it require a third party product?

No need for a 3rd-party tool for this.  You can simply send one to a printer that is set to use one paper tray and the other to another printer (using same printer driver) that is set to use another paper tray by default.  That way you can avoid the need to change the paper tray source via code.

Agree.  If you cannot set the trays as default then you will need to use an application or 3rd party application.
