Creating a 'Save As' Button in Adobe PDF Forms for Document Pages Excluding First Page

Hello, I have a fillable PDF form where the first page serves as a supporting page, and the actual document begins from page 2 onwards. I'm inputting details on the first page, and these details automatically transfer to subsequent pages. What I'm looking to do is add a 'Save As' button to the first page. When clicked, this button should save the document starting from page #2 to the end, excluding the first page. I'm currently using Adobe Pro, but my clients use Adobe Reader, so the button should be compatible with Adobe Reader. Can you assist me in achieving this? Thank you!

May be possible with a hidden template page for the first page.

You will have to define the first page as a Template page, hide it, spawn a copy from it, and then delete that spawned copy when saving. It seems to me to be too much trouble just to achieve hiding that first page, but it's possible...

Hi, thank you very much for your reply. I just want to add details into one place that should update my main PDF form. Do you have any other alternative ideas to accomplish this task? Thanks!
