Printing two reports on one page

100+
P: 434
I have a report that prints only on 1/2 of an 8 1/2 sheet of paper. Because I need two copies of this report and don't have a dot matrix, I would like to print the same report on the top and bottom of the same page. If I can do this it would save me paper. The report has a Page Header section a Detail section and a Page Footer. I think I will probably have to change the Page header to a Report header and the Page Footer to a Report Footer but how do I keep the paper from skipping to a new page before I print the second copy? Any help would be appreciated.

You can't generally print to the same physical page from two separate print commands if you're using a laser printer.

I suggest you reload the paper (Upside-down or back-to-front) and send the job again.

Make a report with your 1/2 sheet report as a sub-report twice.
Need to move you Page Header and footer section information to the Report header and footer section, because the page header and footer does not show up in a sub report.
