    php (maybe js) - duplex printing

    is there any way to program via PHP or Javascript so that a PDF or WORD file that is dynamically generated from the DB is printed in Duplex mode (double sided printing)?

    I know this can be done in Access, but can it be done through on online system?

    thanks!

    No, not possible.

    hmm....we have a 200 page document that is broken up into sections and will be editable online (section by section)...once the user has updated the editable sections, we want to be able to have them bundle the package and send it to print...thing is that pages 1 to 20 are single sided, 20 to 180 duplex and 180 to 200 single sided again. we want to reduce the manual labor and since its possible in with ms access, i thought there might be a solution.

    any suggestions, thoughts, advice, ideas?

    The code has nothing to do with the way pages are printed, that depends on the PRINTER CAPABILITIES, if you have a duplex-capable printer then it the user will have to select that option, otherwise, the printer will print one side at a time.
