Document specific duplex print settings

Hi All
Is it possible to configure a Word document to print duplex independently of the printer's default settings?

Ideal sceanrio:
I have a 10 page document. I want everything to print single sided except pages 2&3 should print double sided (duplexed), and pages 4&5 should be duplexed also.

If that isn't possible, is it feasible to tell the whole document to print duplex?

I'm aware that, on each print,  the user could go FILE, PRINT and change the default settings to print duplex, but I wanted this to be automated for just this one document.

No you can't do that. You always have to consider the printers settings to print duplex.

You could place an hidden comment (that won't print) at the front page in order to warn users that this is supposed to be a duplex document, as long as you format the text as hidden and uncheck the tools > options > print > hidden text check box.

As for the pages you'd like to keep one sided, and considering that your document will always be printed out duplex, you can place a blank page after.
