Group Header Repeat - only for GH1b not GH1a

I know I can have the Group Header repeat on every page, but I want to split up the GH in to 1a and 1b, so that GH1a does NOT repeat, but GH1b does.  The reson for this is that I will be bursting the reports through Visual Cut so that a separate PDF is created for each group (grouped by customer).  Each PDF will have GH1a and GH1b so that GH1a displays the Customer Name and Address (only on the first page of each group - mimicing a report header, and GH1b displaying the Column/field titles on every page - mimicing a page header.

I know you can set the group to repeat on every page, but there does not seem to be an option to control the group options at the 1a and 1b level.

On GH1b, have a supression formula like: Previous({groupfield}) = {groupfield}.  I haven't tested that, but it should work.

Sorry, have that supression formula for GH1a.

Another way would be
Leave the group header as repeat on each page

Suppress GH1A with
InRepeatedGroupHeader

Before I got any of your solutions, I found a work around by just creating another group using the same field - first group has the header that I want at the beginning of each group only, and the second group has the headings that I want repeated on each page and set the field options accordingly.  Any thing bad with doing it this way - am I slowing down the report by having two groups based on the same field?

Probably slowing it a little but in general not enough to make a difference

Do you mean insert "InRepeatedGroupHeader" in the X+1 supression formula?
