data driven pages - how to label current poly differently from all other polys

hi all and thanks for reading...

 

new to the DD pages.  I currently have it enabled on a layer with 5401 records, down to 34 because it is joined to an excel file with 34 rows.  it works well.  I'm stuck on the labels.  I have labels I like for the data driven records (34 of them), they are bigger and more prominent.  I do however also want the other 5401 (well I guess 5400; minus the current DD page poly) to be labelled, but differently, with less emphasis.  when I duplicate my DD layer and unjoin it from the .xlsx, I get my 5401 rows back, fine.  but when I label that layer, of course I also get the label for the current DD page - so the current poly on my DD pages has TWO labels - the big one from it's layer, AND the little label from the layer with all 5401 polys.  so, how can I remove the small label from the duplicate layer from the poly with current DD focus?

 

I hope I've explained that half decently - hadn't see DD pages until yesterday...

 

thanks,
