Print duplex group data

I have a report with several hundred pages.
Report   layout is  something as :
Report Header, Page header, Group1 Header, Detail section then
I divided Group1 footer in several sections as I needed some spacing :
I have several Group footers
Group Footer 1_a ,
Group Footer 1_b,
Group Footer 1_c,
Group Footer 1_d,
Group Footer 1_e.
Then I had Page footer, report footer.

I had page number reset at last sub section of group1 at Group Footer 1_e.

Number of pages for a group depending on data can go from at least 2 to the most  as 5 or 6.
Context of  section of Group Footer1_e I want to be on one side of page.
It is preset empty grid- table that user will use to fill data in and it fit on one page not broken on two pages and that is reason that I put New page before in this section.

Everything was ok up to user decided that it is to much paper for print and wants  to save on paper and print duplex  on both side of paper.
He wants  that first page of group always  has to be on front side of paper never on  back side, does not matter how many pages group has 2,3,4,5,6.
At the same time section of Group Footer1_e has to be on one side of pages not broken on two sides.
I  got suggestion to check in Group Footer1_e New page After and put this in x-2 PageNumber MOD 2 = 1
However in case when  group has 3 pages page# 1 of next group is printed on back side of  page2 instead on front side of next page ,back side of page two has to be empty. The same is as group has 5 pages third page back side has to be empty.

In the SECTION EXPERT there is still a GF1 section you can use

I think the issue is it prints GF1e then does a NEW PAGE because it is full then when it tests for NEW PAGE AFTER it realizes it already did one but maybe hasn't updated the page number yet

DO you have a page header and footer?
Can you shrink them at all?

YOu should be able to check the KEEP TOGETHER option for GF1e

Right click GF1e in the left margin
CLick SECTION EXPERT
Verify GF1e is selected in the section list
CLick KEEP TOGETHER

Does it work as you want?

Is  GF1e the last section of GF1?

Yes GF1e is last section of GF1.
 I need that section to be on one side of page not split between two pages or two sides of one page.
And page after that has next data for G1 and it will be page#1  and  that should  always be on the  front side of page.

The KEEP TOGETHER on the GF1e should take care of keeping it on 1 page assuming it will fit.

You can use the NEW PAGE AFTER idea on the GF1.  Generate it when the page number is odd

PageNumber MOD 2 = 1

I tried this:
KEEP TOGETHER on the GF1e
NEW PAGE AFTER on GF1e x-2 PageNumber MOD 2 = 1  and  still it is not printing properly.
One question should I check box on GF1e  beside x-2 or not?
What would happen if I do not check box just put formula in x-2?

It strange when group has three pages it prints ok, next page (first page of next group)  goes on front side of next page,  but when group G1 have 5 pages it print first page of next group on back of previous group (page#3) what is not ok.

How do you think: “You can use the NEW PAGE AFTER idea on the GF1”  you probably wanted to say on GF1e.

>>One question should I check box on GF1e  beside x-2 or not?
I don't.  IN some versions there seems to be a difference in how it works with it checked or not checked.  I believe if using a formula you are not supposed to check the box but I have seen nothing formal from SAP/Crystal that says that or that indicates there is a difference in the behavior if it is checked compared to not checked.

>>How do you think: “You can use the NEW PAGE AFTER idea on the GF1”  you probably wanted to say on GF1e.
No I meant GF1.  It should work the same as in GF1e.

In the case of the 5 pages, is the page full?

I do not have GF1.
 I think when you enter new subsection in footer it gives title GF1a, GF1b and on.
Yes page 5 is full and it is seating on back side of physical page#3.
