Help on page breaks


I am new to Unix (AIX).

I have a header (in a text file) that needs to be wrtitten on all the pages of a result file (text file). After the header is written, data needs to be read from a file A(text file) and inserted to the result file. If the number of lines reaches 80 in a page, page break needs to be given. In the next page, the same header needs to be written and data from the text file A needs to be read and appended to the result file. This should be continued until end of file of file A. Can someone give me pointers in getting this?
