Trouble with a stapling printer

edited December 2012 in Devices

I am using version 12.02 of RB through Delphi 2007.

I am printing 2 copies of a report which has 3 pages. I configured both the
report and the printer driver so that the pages are assembled together. It
prints pages 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3 which is what I expect.

My problem : the printer I am using has the option of stapling the assembled
copies together. When I print my report using ReportBuilder, the 6 pages
(1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3) are all stapled together which is not what it is supposed
to do. On the other hand, when I print a similar document using notepad (or
Word), the printer still assembles the pages correctly (1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3)
but staples the 2 copies separately as I would expect (1st staple : pages 1,
2 and 3; 2nd staple : pages 1, 2 and 3).

I have tested many other applications with printing capabilities and they
all seem to work fine. The only applications I could not have the printer to
staple correctly are the ones using ReportBuilder.

Is there a way to configure my report so that the printer knows how to
staple my documents correctly ?
