Default Printing Sections of a Word Document

I have a word 2007 document which is split into 3 Sections. I need to print each Section with different print settings- Section 1 onto cardstock via the manual feeder (tray 1); Section 2 single sided onto plain paper from tray 2; and Section 3 double sided onto pre-printed paper from tray 3.

I can and do print each section separately to get the desired result but it would save time if I could print the whole document in one operation. Is it possible to do this?



I use a HP 2605dtn laserjet printer with the necessary manual feed slot and trays. My OS is Vista Business

Since I cannot duplicate what you want, you might try Page Layout tab > Breaks > Continuous to break each section and then try formatting each section the way you want to see if this works

Hi, Thanks for the response. I may not have been very clear about what I want to do. I have formatted the document into 3 sections and set the page layouts to show what I want. However to print the document I need to use the print command 3 times and set the printer properties for the section being printed each time (ie print s1; print s2; print s3). Ideally, I'd like to be able to give one print command which would then print each section with the appropriate printer properties. I guess it would need some sort of batch print command or printer script (the exact terms my not be these). Maybe its just not possible. Cheers

I think I understand what you want to do: print various parts of your document with different Printer Setups, so when you Print, each section is printed differently, but all this is done with one simple Print Action

Here is what I had in mind with Section Breaks

Ahhhh now I see it - Clicking on the Page Setup arrow in the Page Layout tab in Word gives you the option to set the paper source within the document rather than at the printer. My first try didn't quite get the result I was after but I'm sure I'll get there now. Many thanks and apologies I didn't follow your answer first time.
