Do you or can you get a printer that supports duplex printing?
Rather than sharing a copy of your file, I suggest describing the design of the layouts and the tables from which this data is printed to produce your reports and also tell us what version of FileMaker you are using.
If you are unable to do that, sharing your file will not do much good as you'll have trouble implementing any changes we might suggest to you.
We do have a duplex printer. Basically, our file using FMP 11 has two reports in it using data from one table. One report does the first and last page on one legal (8.5 by 14) piece of paper. The other report does the second and third pages, so when it is all printed out, you fold it in half to create a four page report.
These reports were made a long time ago. My question is how to get filemaker to print out page 1/4 on one side of a piece of legal paper, and then page 2/4 report on the other side, for each record. If we select duplex printing, with the 1st/4th day report, it prints this report for every record on both sides of the paper... So, two children's 1st/4th page reports are printed on one legal sheet of paper...not what we want. So we have to just print the first report on the front of the paper, reorder the copies for the proper record order to come out again, and then reload them into the printer tray and bring up the other report and print that out onto the back side. Sooo time consuming when there are now 13 classrooms to print out.
Is there a way to combine two reports into one? Like create a first page and then a second page? I have created reports in programs like Access but not FileMaker Pro. Just wondering how hard this might be...since I can't really see any other way to get these two reports to print out "together".
It is impossible to answer your question without a more detailed understanding of the design of your database. These "pages" of information are not stored as pages, they are stored in one or more records in one or more tables. We'd need to understand that underlying structure of your database in order to be able to suggest changes that might resolve this issue.
Knowing the exact version of FileMaker that you are currently using is also crucial so that we don't suggest a solution that doesn't work with your version of FileMaker.
