smartform duplex printing and tray info


Is it possible to do duplex printing by also passing tray info to the pages. In my form I have page 1 coming from a different tray and subsequent pages from a different tray but these subsequent pages need to be double sided.

When I do not pass tray info i get the duplex print but I loose it when I pass the tray info to the page even though all the pages are from the same tray. Is there a solution for this? Please suggest.

    If you are printing SAPSCRIPT, the duplex can be specified in the

    associated SAPSCRIPT form with the field Printmode as per the following

    Note: 96102 - Information on double-sided print with SAPscript

    It is similar for Smartforms that the duplex can be specified in the


    In this way a sequence is sent to the printer to turn on duplex print

    if the Printmode is set this way in the SAPSCRIPT/Smartform.

    It's possoble to test via transaction SO10 in client 000 and print the


    Tray selections:

    The tray selection process varies according to whether you are printing

    SAPScript, Smartforms and/or ABAP Lists.

    It also varies among different device types. Please refer to the following SAP Notes:

    189618 - Paper tray and print mode for Smart Forms

    542736 - Controlling input and output bins for Smart Form
