How do you create pages with different information in Crystal Reports?

I was just informed that the report should print the data as this

  Page 1,Page 1; Page 2, Page 2.
 Two page 1's, but with small changes in information.

 Same information as stated in an earlier question that I marked as answered :
 Most of the information will be the same in the detail section, with exception of one field. The page header will contain different text

As I commented in the original email.

You will need a subreport for each "copy" of the report you want to print.

There can only be 1 detail section in a report (1 per record) and a record can only appear in one detail section.

If the report is providing information on 1 record from the database or a limited number of records, it might be possible to use arrays to gather the data then through some tricks with sections generate the 4 copies of the report.  I think the complexity of that especially if you need to change something 6 weeks (months) from now would far out way the issues of maintaining multiple subreports.

Check this sample video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aEnEQhOsSvU 
It is showing how to use one report and a parameter to print an invoice and mark the copies as Original, Copy1, Copy2. Then a job is created and 3 copies of the same report, but with different parameters are added. When the job is started it will export or print 3 different copies. Seems the same scenario as yours. Let me know if you need something different. The sample is going further showing how to email the generated file, which you don't need. Ignore this part.

This works great: You will probably need to create a subreport which you should put in the report footer if you want it to be page 2.  You will have to use the report header and footer in the subreport to simulate the page headers.

How would I do the following:
 You will have to suppress the main report page header when in the subreport
