Without flogging a dead horse, repeating fields are not a good design element. As you have discovered, they are very difficult to work with.

Instead take advantage of FMP's relational capabilities and use a portal to create and display the "rows" -- each of which is actually a related record but they can be designed to appear and work in a similar way to repeating fields.

Only much, much better.

If you really need to use the repeating fields, check out http://www/databasepros.com and search for repeating. You'll find some techniques for navigating to a specified repetition in a repeating field. It involves using a layout that has the repeating field on it in a specific tab order, and then using Go to Next Field and a counter to get to the repetition you need.
