Wolfgang... Thank you, man. Thank you so very much. This works perfectly.

As I understand it from your correction, my mistake was that I was not
doing the page break before everything else, as I should, because in any
case there will always be a page break in my layout. Then, let the rest of
the algorithm decide if there will be a left or right page, headers and
footers, etc. Am I correct?

Thank you again for your work.

“You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an
intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do
something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look
so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag
him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a
bitch.’” — Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell
