Crystal Reports - Parameter to add extra lines

I have a report that is used for employees to sign in for training purposes.  It displays the employee names on the left and then a line for them to sign in on the right.   It pulls the employees names from the employee table.  However, we sometimes have temporary employees that are not in our system, therefore are not in the table.  I still want these people trained and I'd like to create a parameter that asks the user how many extra lines they want to print on the report.  They enter a number and then at the bottom, after all of their employees names are some blank lines where the temporaries can print their names on the left and sign to the right.

Can this be done?

Use "Insert Section Below" to add Detail sections.
Suppress them based on the parameter.
For example,
Detail b can be suppressed if the parameter is less than 1
Detail c can be suppressed if the parameter is less than 2
Detail d can be suppressed if the parameter is less than 3
I don't think you want to use the detail section since that will add extra lines after each employee.

You can do the same thing by using multiple report footers.
