Topic: Merging Form Data?

I have an odd problem posed to me by my user base, which I (sadly) think I know the answer to, but might as well toss it out here.

We have a gigantic database which requires 3 page forms generated with the individual records. I have been merrily doing this with the FDF tool kit generating simple files of Page 1, Page 2, Page 3. Now, I have been asked to have a way of doing something along the lines of Page 1, then N copies of Page 2 and Page 3 where N can be anywhere between 1 and 50, all generated into one file.

So, my question is, can I generate 1 copy of Page 1, N copies of Page 2 and 3, then merge them together so that the end result is what the users want? If not, how would one go about doing this?
