Ack! Summarizing repeating fields!

For nth record, get a total for a repeating numeric data field where a label field such as productID = matchValue.

When combined with CustomList or with another custom function, you can summarize repeating fields across a found set.

UPDATED 7/31/08
New feature to count matches if datafield and matchfield are the same.
