Howto change left/right margin when print

In a report we defined a left margin of 2 cm and a right margin of 1 cm.

When printing the report simplex everything is ok.

But when printing the report duplex we want to change the margins. Odd pages should print "normal" - but the page on the back, i.e. even pages, should then be "moved" to the left. That means the left margin has to be 1 cm and the right margin 2 cm.

How can we achieve this behavior?

      Thanks for your answer.

      I know this document, but it doesn´t solve our problem.

      Printing the report duplex runs fine.

      The problem is how to change the left and right margins different for odd and even pages.

      Is it (and how is it) possible to change the margins page by page?

    When looking at the Page Setup window there are no X-2 buttons for the margins ... meaning one can not conditionally (by page number or any other condition) set the margins differently.

    Basically this means that the page margins are static for the entire report.

    Perhaps export the report to Microsoft Word if it allows this functionality.
