selecting trays using macros

I am needing to change the source tray in a document that is first calling a macro that has some graphics and text. I call the macro to be an overlay and then fill in some more text on the page. I can't seem to have the macro print if I don't select a source tray inside the macro and the printer seems to ignore the tray command before and after I call the macro. Any help would be appreciated.

RE: selecting trays using macros

Put the paper source command outside the macro. Make
sure that the paper tray command is received by the
printer before the current page has received any printable
data. Otherwise, the printer will eject the current page
immediately from the current tray, and then log your new
tray as the current tray.

Never put paper tray or paper size commands within an
overlay. It will cause the page to be printed before
your overlay is run.
