Split Crystal Report into separate files based on page breaks

Is there a way to split one Crystal Report into separate PDF files based on the page breaks?  We have Crystal Server but it doesn't have report bursting (or at least I don't think it does).  I found the following instructions

which are a start to my solution but when I try to add a new publication I don't have that option.

I read somewhere that there might be a way to use VB to accomplish what I need.  I am not a VB programmer but we have some in our office so that is a viable solution.

Thank you.
