|If you're using Clip Manager, you need to change the parameters spec to read "repeatingField ; n" and then follow the author's instructions. You can save this in CLip Manager, but trying to set it into FileMaker will not work because the parameter name cannot be a number.|

|Repeating fields can not have a reference <1.
You mean >1.
