Overlays and printing work independently.
To achieve what you want your application will have to print TWO pages -
purchase order and a blank page.
What you requested by OVRPRTF is to put first overlay on all odd pages and
second overlay on all even pages - this is what you see.

Best regards

Subject:  printing on both sides





Hi,

    I've been inquiring the last few weeks on certain questions
concerning the OVRPRTF command. I have received lots of helpful info so
I thought I would run one more by you bunch of guru's and then I will
leave you alone about this subject. I have created a purchase order
overlay using the AFPU utility on our AS/400. The purchase order is a
two sided form with a overlay on the front set to accept entered in
information and an overlay on the back of legal info. My problem is that
if the user enters in more than one purchase order the second page is
not starting a new page. Instead it is printing over the legal
information on the back of the previous purchase order. I have tried
overriding the print file and telling it to print one page per side but
it seems to want to do it anyway. Here is a copy of what I'm entering;
any guidance would be appreciated.

OVRPRTF FILE(APRT01) MULTIUP(1) DEVTYPE(*AFPDS) FRONTOVL(QGPL/POOVERL)
BACKOVL(QGPL/POOVER2) DUPLEX(*YES)

Thanks
Chad Walsingham
