Using printAsBitmap, how to print multiple pages individually

Hi
I have a Flash 8 program in which each different frame gives the user the opportunity to manipulate different objects to create an image. I.e frame 2 gives objects A,B+C to play with. Frame 3 gives objects D,E+F to play with etc.

When they have created that image, they can print it. I need them to be able to print only the current page, no matter what frame they decide to enter. It contains transparent images so im using printAsBitmap with the following code

on (release) {
      printAsBitmap(0, "bmovie");
}

By default, it trys to print all frames in the movie. If i apply the frame label #p, it will print only the current frame but i can only use that frame label once. I.e if i apply #p label to a second frame, it prints both frames with the #p label.

Can anyone help?

I don't see how you can do it with code but a lateral approach would be..
Create movieclips containing the contents of each frame
Use only one frame on the main time line
load the movieclips from the library ..using attachMovie.. to the stage..on demand
when print is used there is only one (the current) frame and selected movie that can print
