Adding extra blank page after group RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a report which prints on both sides,
    Every client should be printed on a new page,
    But if the number of pages of the client is an odd number,
    I have to add an extra blank page after it so that the next client can be printed on a new paper.
    How can I do this??

    Thanks a lot!!!

  • bumping this...

    Those links have no solution. I have the same problem. 2-sided printing and each client needs to start on an odd page number. My client group section header already has this formula for the "New Page Before" hook...

    groupnumber > 1

    that's so each client starts on a new page. But I need to add another page when the client is starting on an even page number( i.e. the backside of the paper).

    So I tried adding this to the "New Page After" hook in the group footer...

    remainder(pagenumber, 2) = 1

    but those two hook methods don't appear to work together. Even if I put true in both, there is not a blank page.

  • Solved.

    I added an extra section to the client's group header (right click section -> insert section). Moved all my heading down into the new section and made the top section empty (and really small). Then in the empty header section I put these formulas...

    New Page Before: groupnumber > 1

        to make each client start on a new page

    New Page After: remainder(pagenumber, 2) = 0

        to make each client always start on an odd page number.


    Works like a charm. I also added another parameter to control the page break style. So the New Page After formula is actually this...
    not {NormalPrintStyle} and remainder(pagenumber, 2) = 0

    Hope this helps someone.

    That works perfectly.

    Thanks.
