    I'm not sure I completely understand what sort of example you are looking for, but I'll give this a shot.  If this is a case where for one row of data returned from the database needs to have it's fields spread througout a form letter that will span multiple pages I would do the following:

    1.) Insert an additional Details section for each page of the letter.  (You'll have details a, details b, etc.)

    2.) Use text objects/database fields are required in each section

    3.) Use the Section Expert to force a new page after Details a, details b, details c.  

    You could also group by your recipient_ID (or simliar unique identifier) and set the group header to repear on each page in order to add a repeating page header (like Mr. Joe Smith - Page 2 etc.)

    Hope this helps,
