Printing multiple jobs as single document

I've been trying to print reports from a VB.NET winforms application.  The reports I'm working on have to appear as different layouts on even and odd pages, so when they are duplex printed they can be added to a binder (landscape orientated).

VS 2010's local reports (rdlc) do not allow the body to access the page number, so I cannot use that to determine the layout.  My workaround has been to print each page as independent reports.  However, each report takes it's own page.

I would like to find a way to trick the printer into thinking multiple reports are a single document, thereby duplexing the pages.  One suggested solution was to increase the print spooler's timeout limit, but I can't seem to figure out how.

If anyone knows how to increase the timeout, combine the reports into one before printing, or any other possible alternatives (the even/odd layout needs to remain as it is), I would greatly appreciate the help.

I appreciate the help, but I've managed to find a different solution to my problem.  Now I can print the report as a single job, without having to generate multiple reports.
