When printing large runs of multi page documents (production work orders where each job is 5 pages and we are printing 100 jobs), to support stapling options on the printers.
All office products support this and PDF programs.

I still need some more details about your scenario. What is the setup for the report(s) you print? Is this a ReportBook consisting of two instances of the Invoice report? Is this a whole report producing series of invoices using appropriate grouping? Or are these two separate reports and two print jobs, which the printer threats as one? I guess that the viable way to help would be if you use report book and would like it to send each report forming it to be send as a separate print job to the printer.

I just tested this again and have the same results.
I have an invoice style report. My first "Invoice" was 5 pages long, the 2nd was 3 pages long.
I printed all 8 pages. in the preferences for my printer (Xerox Color 550) I specified I wanted stapling.
The end result was all 8 pages stapled together.
The desired output would be 1 group of 5 pages stapled together and the other group to have 3 pages stapled.
I believe the issue is that the job is being sent to the printer as one large file. Therefore the printer does not understand where the breaks should be in the documents and therefore staple them.
Hi, The print dialog of all report viewers allow opening the Printer Properties of the selected printer, and all printer-specific options are accessible there, including finishing options like stapling. The same dialog is used form MS Word, etc. Please elaborate further on your usage scenario. And thank you for your input!
