Returns the last repetition number that is not empty.

Example : For the field named "RepField" that has max 10 repetitions shown as below, this function returns "7".
RepField [1] = "a", RepField [2] = "b", ...... RepField [6] = "", RepField [7] = "g",
RepField [8] = "", Repfield [9] = "", RepField [10] = ""

Only for use with FileMaker version 18 and later because this custom function uses "while" function.
