I have crystal Report that has several hundred pages.
Report has a group and page number is reset for the group.
Group could have from 1 to 5,6 pages .
I want to print all report in duplex  mode to save on paper.

However first page of the group has to be printed on front side always not on back side of pages.

You will need to add a blank page when the group ends on an odd numbered page.

Try using the NEW PAGE AFTER option the group footer with a formula

PageNumber MOD 2 = 1

mlmcc.

Just to correct myself a little bit.

Before I got this request for duplex printing I had lay of report something as :
Report Header, Page header, Group1 Header, Detail section then
I divided  Group1 footer in several sections as I needed some spacing :
 Group 1 has several Group footers
 Group1_a,
Group1_b,
Group1_c,
Group1_d,
Grup1_e.
Then I had Page footer,report footer.

 As last group  Group1_e had to be on separate page(still it has to be on separate page).
Here in this section (Group1_e ) I had New Page Before and Reset Page Number After.

How your suggestion for duplex print  is fit for this? And where I need to put this
PageNumber MOD 2 = 1
In footer of Group1_a or in ???
