    Have you checked whether the Separator Page is enabled for these users? Check under printer Properties > Advanced > Separator Page. If any file shows there, delete it.

    Also, some printers let the user specify a printer-controlled separator page. If that is the case, you'll find it somewhere under Printing Preferences. As this is device specific, I can't give any more details without knowing what printer you are using.

    Check in the driver, under Printing Preferences, probably under the Output Options tab or similar. I don't know about your printer, but many Xerox printers do let you select separator pages there.

    It can be a setting on the printer itself, but the driver setting will always override that, unless you are using a driver for a different printer, which does not have the setting.
