Adding map insets on a page in mapbook

I am trying to add insets to show detail areas on certain pages of my map series, but the inset shows up on every page of my series. Is there a way to "lock" it onto only the page I want it to show?



Mapping Center Answer:

Off the top of my head (thinking this is a quick and dirty method), I would make two map documents, one for the pages without an inset, and one for the pages with insets.  The feature class with each page's main extent will likely need an attribute that denotes whether the page has an inset. 

If that doesn't work, it would be helpful to know whether you're using ArcMapBook, MPSAtlas, or PLTS?
