How do I programatically change the Crystal reports formula for a Groupfooters "New Page After" property?

I want the user to be able to select a checkbox if they want a page break after each group of information.   The following code works fine if I don't have a formula in the "New Page After" formula.  But as soon as I put "formula = Not OnLastRecord" in at design time setting the property to true or false has no effect.   It always puts in a page break.

        If cboxPageBreak.Checked Then
            objReport.GroupFooterSection2.SectionFormat.EnableNewPageAfter = True
        Else
            objReport.GroupFooterSection2.SectionFormat.EnableNewPageAfter = True
        End If

How can access the formula section of "NewPageAfter" to remove the formula at run time?
