I have a HP Officejet Pro L7680 with the most current HP drivers installed on Vista Business 32bit.  When I am printing in Publisher 2007, on legal size paper with both sided printing selected it still prints out in simplex.  I have tried everything I can think of.  Properties are good, the document size in Publisher is legal, the document size in printing options is legal, and is set to both sided printing.....  Help!

It worked fine previously in Publisher 2003, this is what i am not understanding.  I direct upgrade should not affect the way print jobs are completed.
