I need help with setting up Microsoft Word and its Multi page source feature with a Canon Driver
This is a Microsoft Word 97 procedure outlining how to select different page sources from within the application.
I hope to confirm this with Word 2000 ASAP.

If you have corrections of comments, please help by providing feedback to the email at the bottom of this page.

This procedure is used in situations where the Canon driver page source selection is limited.
This procedure has not been tested with all situations and all printer drivers.

Ensure you have the latest print driver version.
Ensure the driver is correctly configured with the printers features.
Make sure the Printer Drivers page source features are set to default settings.
Finally, before Launching Word, ensure the driver is set as default.

This is a quick test to prove to the customer it actually works.
Feel free to use the information with the customers documents to get the results they need.
 

Step 1.     Type the following exactly?
                1 Enter, 2 Enter, 3 Enter, 4 Enter

Step 2.     Highlight the 1, Select File Page Setup, Select Paper Source.
                Under First Page, Select Drawer X (Whatever drawer you want)
                Under Other Pages Select Auto (I don?t think it really matters what you pick here)
                Under Apply to ensure you select Selected Text
                Now click OK

Step 3.    Notice a Section Break has been added.
                Ensure the remaining text on your screen is just below this Section
                break. You may have to remove a single carriage return

Step 4.    Highlight the next part of your text. 2 in this example
                Again, Select File, Page Setup, Select Paper Source.
                Under First Page, Select Drawer X (Whatever drawer you want)
                Under Other Pages Select Auto (I don?t think it really matters what you pick here)
                Under Apply to ensure you select Selected Text
                Now click OK
                Again, Notice a Section Break has been added.
                As in step 3, ensure the remaining text on your screen is just below this Section
                break. You may have to remove a single carriage return

                Yes this is a repeat of step 2 and 3
                Confused? Because of the previous Section break, this highlighted text is considered the first page again. (Ask Microsoft)

Step 5.    Repeat Steps 2, and 3 for each of the pages of the customers document.

Step 6.    After completing the document, confirm the page settings are correct.
                Hightlight the text of any particular page.  Using File, Page Setup, Select Paper Source confirm the correct drawer is requested.
