Doesn't work; all but first cell empty.
1.5 worked OK.

If you're using the global calculation option, you'll need (1) to use the date as a trigger field and (2) the Extend function as noted in Step 3a in the documentation:
Let (
trigger = CAL::Date_G ;
fnCalendar ( Extend ( <date field> ) ; "calendar" ; 1 ; "" ; "" )
)

You could also use the following in Step 6:
<iteration> & " " & Get(CalculationRepetitionNumber)
