Default Booklet printing in Word 2007

Tearing my hair out and wasting LOTS of paper and toner in trying to print a
booklet. I do NOT have a duplex printer, but I cannot seem to get the
settings right for this - the pages either don't print next to each other
properly, or are upside down, or in the wrong order.
Can anyone point me to a GOOD tutorial where I can see what I am not doing?

Default Booklet printing in Word 2007

Word is crap at booklet printing. Instead, save your document to PDF using
Word 2007's built-in converter. Then open the document in Adobe Reader v9
and use its booklet feature. It is impressively good! It is the one saving
grace in installing a PDF reader that is such a hog.

Doesn't work. I have seven pages of text and Acrobat will NOT print the
blank page as page 8 at the end of the document.
In other words instead of printing page 1 and page 8 (the blank page) on the
first sheet, it prints page 1 and page 7, but it prints a blank page in
front of page 2 so that page 2 is NOT on the reverse side of the paper to
page 1.

I've never had any problem printing a booklet with an odd number of pages in
Acrobat Reader. Have you insert a break next odd page at the end of the
first page?

No. (I have to say it's not my document - it was originally created in
Publisher and has been converted to Word for insertion in another document,
although it's a document in it's own right)

If I insert a break -next odd page at the bottom of page 1, when it gets
saved as pdf there's a blank page as page 2.....so that doesn't work either.

Default Booklet printing in Word 2007

In fact, I just retested this. I took a 5 page (A4) document and saved it as
PDF.

I opened it in Acrobat Reader, selected Print and in the option dialog chose
Booklet Printing under Scaling, Both Sides under Booklet Subset, set my
printer driver to Duplex (Both Sides) and pressed OK. It printed a perfect
A5 booklet using Pages 1-5 with pages 6-8 entirely blank as expected.

There is definitely something very weird going on here. It doesn't matter
what I do, the print preview in Acrobat shows the WRONG printing - the blank
page is inserted in front of page 2, NOT next to page 1, which is where it
should be.
If I choose Odd pages, (I don't have a duplex printer), it shows page 1 and
page 7, NOT page 1 and the blank page.

I agree that's wrong, but I'm not sure why. Have you tried it with a
different document?
