Forget repeating fields. There are better ways of doing things.

I'm not quite sure what you want to achieve but try this: make a calculation field (text) and enter

field A & "

Actually I think it is not exactly what I wanna do.

Want to create an array with 12 or more rows and one column - but let's set 2 rows in order to simplify. I want to set in the 2 rows of my array the value of 2 number fields A and B. So I would do a numeric test on A and on B. If test is positive, for each row I create a record in another file.

Tx for helping...

Create a global number field with 12 (or your maximum) repetitions. I'll call it gIndex. Populate each repetition of gIndex with its corresponding number, e.g. 1, 2, 3, 4, ...

Then, create a calculation with 'max' repetitions. Choose( gIndex - 1, Extend(firstfield), Extend(secondfield), Extend(thirdfield), Extend(fourthfield), ... Extend(maxfield) ).
