Crystal Suppress Header for specific parameters

I have a huge crystal report that prints out different "pages" (headers) based on specific parameters.  I want to hide the main page header (our company logo) on 2 of the 25 pages.
I had it where if @p5 then true else false but then even if other parameters are picked it with that one, it hides it on those pages too.
Does that make sense?

Which 2 pages?

Can you identify the page from code like by page number?

No because you could pick many parameters or just 1.  If you pick 4 parameters, you would get 4 separate pages with different information on them.

right now that is what i am trying to do - suppress the header that has the logo if page 35 is picked.
But the problem is if they pick pages other than 35 too, it suppresses it on all pages.

Page Header a - Has logo
Report Footer a - ax - several different options (pages) to pick from.
It is a sales proposal report.  A sales rep can pick that they want page 4 (report footer d) which is a scope of work and page 7 (report footer h) which is a list of parts and pricing and also page 35 (rep ft ax) which is our contract.  I want it to show the header on page 4 and page 7 but not page 35.
If i do the supress where if page 35 is true then suppress, it supresses it for all pages selected because it think that since 35 is true then it should!  I can't think of a formula for it to say supress ONLY on report footer ax.   Sorry if this is confusing.

Try this idea
It seems to work in my report

Add a formula to the report header
WhilePrintingRecords;
Global BooleanVar  SuppressLogo := False;
""

Conditionally suppress the logo with this formula
WhilePrintingRecords;
Global BooleanVar  SuppressLogo;
SuppressLogo

In each of the RF sections add a formula.  Use True or False depending on whether to suppress the logo for that section
WhilePrintingRecords;
Global BooleanVar  SuppressLogo;
SuppressLogo := True/False;
""

I assume you have NEW PAGE BEFORE set for each section.
