  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

I simplified this function from the FieldMaxRepetitions function on this site submitted by HAZI back in 2014 ( I use this function to identify how many repetitions are defined on a given repeating field. Useful for setting recursion limits, clearing card window forms which utilize global repeating fields, or any other situation where you would need to have this information on hand
