Are formatting the actual Document to a Duplex and then sending the job to the Printer set to Duplex.

Get them to dump the Office Duplex Format and just rely on the printer to do the duplexing.

Ok im not sure where to find those option in office, i looked around word and didn't find anything...

Here is something else thats funny, if we send just 1 page to the Ricoh, it printers it the right way. It only seems to be when we send 2 page documents that it flips it.

Bypass Tray

We have tested everything, and the only thing that seems to work is running it thro the Bypass tray.

Don't know why but the paper is in the same way as the tray and it prints the right way.
