Enter number of copies to print of a form as a variable

I would like to be able to print a variable number of copies of a form by using a data field to hold the number of copies for each form such as an invoice. In other words, I'd like to print 3 copies of some invoices, 4 copies of some invoices, 2 copies of others, etc. For each invoice, the number of copies needed would be part of the invoice data. Is that possible with Crystal Reports 2011? Thanks!

    You must a trick to do this, which is described in the following discusson, It is also works for CR 2011, and this is a great idea:

    As a next step, filter your report (in this example the ].[Test_Copy] view) as many copies needed by your variable or database field.
