Displaying multiple embedded reports

I am trying to create a report that is structured as follows:

page 1:
     group xxx header
          detail section
     group xxx footer

page 2-6:
     variable number of detail sections, each linked with xxx on page 1

Essentially, I want to write a 1-page letter to each of my clients, and on the pages that follow the letter, i want to give a 1-page per job summary of the jobs open for that client.  

For example, if client xxx has 5 jobs, the letter would list the 5 jobs in summary form on the letter, and then then next five pages should each be a 1-page summary per job.

I am having a difficult time figuring out the best way to organize my report/subreport structure to make this work.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Hello The_Sheckster,

You would put the subreports one below the other in the group footer section and insert a pagebreak control before each one.

Thank you for your suggestion.  I forgot to add that the report should flow as follows:

Client 1 - page 1:
Client 1 -      group xxx header
Client 1 -          detail section
Client 1 -     group xxx footer
Client 1 -page 2-6:
Client 1 -     variable number of detail sections, each linked with xxx on page 1

Client 2 - page 1:
Client 2 -      group xxx header
Client 2 -          detail section
Client 2 -     group xxx footer
Client 2 -page 2-9:
Client 2 -     variable number of detail sections, each linked with xxx on page 1

etc.

Should there be a total of 2 report objects or 3?  Your answer seems to suggest 3, but my intuition tells me there should just be 2 reports - one main and one subreport.

Thank you.

You cannot have detail sections outside of a group.

not even if it is embedded in completely separate subreport?
