I have a report which is used to create id cards with person pictures based on the person's id passed from a ref cursor. The problem i am having now is that they decided to have the pictures on the back of the card. i got them to print, but the persons are getting the wrong photos. everything would be fixed if the printing started from right to left instead of left to right on the back side of the card.is there anyway in reports to get this done. i am using reports 10g.

then where is the problem, if you are printing the photos on the back side of the card. how it matters that you are printing it from left to right OR right to left?

there are 10 cards per page.5 rows and 2 colums. so what is happening in each row is person on the 1'st column is getting the image of the person in the 2'nd column and vice versa. if the images were printed on the front side then the current order is correct,but since the image has to be printed on the back side the problem arises.

Obviously, the simplest way would be to print only one column on each side (aligned to the center of page, so that front and back paper side wouldn't matter at all).

However, it would waste 1/2 of the paper. Could you purchase such a format (for example, if current paper size is A4, you'd need NOT A5, but vertically cut A4)? Or, visit a nearby print office, bring a chocolate with you and politely ask them to cut the paper as you'd like to have it.

Unfortunately, I can't suggest anything clever regarding Reports Builder. As there's no "right to left" print direction, you *might* (perhaps) develop a system which would use some kind of ORDER BY to properly order cards and pictures on the back side.
