Crystal Reports Mailing Labels--start printing on a label other than the first one

I use CR 2008.  I have a multicolumn report which prints mailing labels 2 across and 3 down for a total of 6 labels per page.  It works correctly...it starts printing on the first label at the top left of the page...call it label #1.  Sometimes I would like to tell it to start with a different label like #2 or #3.  A program called Bartender (which I'm moving away from) does this well.  I would like to do the same in Crystal.

Any ideas?

would it be possible to create as many "blank" labels to skip those you don't want to print?

When SAP merged the BO/Crystal web site with their own they didn't leave the Crystal article available through the old links.  Sometimes they can be found, in this case I didn't find it.

mlmcc-
thanks for directing me to that link.  I'm still trying to apply it to my situation.  Maybe I could follow up with you after I get a better handle on it?
