I am creating a Crystal Report with three up 6x9's on a single 11x17 piece of paper.  There is no problem printing that to any of the printers in the building.  Although now, I need to print duplex on them and Crystal is having a hard time understanding what it is suppose to do.  I need to setup Crystal to print all three fronts of the 6x9's first and then flip and print all of the backs to those specific 6x9's.  I am using Foxpro table as my datasource.  I have printed duplex before out of Crystal, but now since it is three up it is not working the way I want it.  Thanks in advance.

The duplex is printing just the wrong backs are on each,is that correct?

Front    Back
1            3

2            2

3            1

How is the data placed for the report?

Is this 3 detail sections or 1?

Basically I need to have the data that prints 1, 2, 3 on the first page, reprint in the same order on the next page.  Not all of the data, but certain fields out of my foxpor table.  Right now it will print dealer information 1, 2, 3 on the first page, and once it gets to the second page it will print customer information 4, 5, 6.

Like this:
Page 1     Page 2
1               1
2               2
3               3

Page 3     Page 4
4               4
5               5
6               6

It is 2 details sections actually.  And right now it is working with me supressing on of the details based on the if the page is odd/even.  I have placed blank records into the table and placed the field that is used for the relationship in there.  So it is still calling the next data in the table as it goes down, but I have added the same data repeated in the table.

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

Do you want pages 1&2 back to back then 3&4 on the same sheet?

The only way I can think to do that is with 4 detail sections

DetailsA
1
