Duplex Printing of Postcard reminders - Not printing back on last page.

I have a Crystal report that has been designed to print 4 post card size mailers on 8.5 x 11 landscape card stock.

The report data comes from a view, where the grouping was done so there is no grouping on the report.
All sections on report are suppressed except for the details sections.
Front of mailer contains customer information and back is all generic information.

Details section is set with Format with Multiple Columns checked
Details a section has no section formatting
Below Details a there are sections Details b, Details c, Details d, Details e, Details f
Each of these sections have this formula in Suppress on the Common Tab
recordnumber mod 4 = 1
recordnumber mod 4 = 2
recordnumber mod 4 = 3

There is no other formatting in these sections.

The report runs perfectly until the last page.
Depending on the record count it will sometimes end up with either 1,2 or 3 fronts of the mailers but no backs.
If the record count comes out ok and there are 4 fronts then the report does have the back generic page.

How can I get the generic back to print if there are less than 4 fronts on the last page?

RE: Duplex Printing of Postcard reminders - Not printing back on last page.

You may have to include up to 3 "dummy" blank sections to get the report to roll over to the back. The suppress formula for the dummy section that will show in the 4th place on the cardstock would be something like this:


not OnLastRecord or
(OnLastRecord and rownumber mod 4 < 4 

You would replace "< 4" with "< 3" for the dummy in the third position and "< 2" for the dummy in the second postion.
