    Default Force Group to start on odd numbered report page

    I am printing a report which is split into Groups, and I am printing the report double sided. I would like to force each Group to start on an odd numbered page so that I can separate the report into sections and give them to the relevant Group leaders.

    Is there an easy way to do this?

    Welcome to the Alpha Forum!

    Since this is your first post I'd like to confirm that we aren't ignoring you. I'm sure the lack of response is only because nobody knows of a way to do what you asked. I could be wrong about that but since nobody else has responded and I've been using Alpha products since about 1990 and I don't know of any way, I have to assume the answer is no.

    This seems like a good candidate for posting on the Wishlist.

    Hi Douglas,

    I remember posting a response to something similar to this as to the methodology.

    Basically, you have a special group that contains the other group that breaks based upon the page number being either odd or even. The page number at the time of the group break may be the previous page, so you may have to add or subtract 1 to get the desired break, but it should work.
