Hello, I did ask this question before but worded badly.  I think people thought I wanted to split the pages and print to different trays.  What I need is to print a report three times and send each report copy to a different paper tray.  Ideally a laser printer with three trays and different paper in each tray.  I found an article on here about printer calls but not sure I can use that in Crystal 2008 and then in a crystal viewer for the end user to print?

Thanks!

If you are trying to do this from the viewer, you can't do it through the default print button.  You would need to dd your own button to the viewer and then write the code.  

The code given in that example would have to change to use the .Net dlls.

Here are links to the basic code

Don't think I can add a button to the viewer, it's Logicity free crystal viewer.  Thanks for the links.  Not sure how to use that code in Crystal 2008.

You don't use it in Crystal.  To do what you want you have to write an application to control the printing of the reports.

I believe Visual Cut can do what you want

I had looked at that software but it seems to be more about printing different pages of the report to different trays.  Or print to pdf and split.

If Visual Cut can't do it then you will have to write your own.

What I have done for the moment is install a printer three times and use a different default tray for each and then print the report three times; once each to a different printer copy.  I am thinking there is proably some batch print software that can simulate this process.

If you have to do it from the Logicity viewer then you are basically stuck with the method you are using.
