summaries on repeating fields

I have a repeating field that have created a calculation for. The calculation basically says Case(Incident type = "Theft"; 1;"") this would return a value of 1 should the incident type be theft. I then have a summary field that totals the entries for the incident type that = "theft" However this is a repeating field. Reason being that in addition to theft the incident may also include burglary for example. Is it possible somehow to have this field report both events to the summary field or is it as I assume... that only the 1st entry in the repeating field is going to show in the summary. if thats the case I'd be happy to hear any suggestions to remedy my dilemma. Thanks, Ron

... Put it into a related structure -- Repeating fields are absolutely useless for this sort of thing.... And most things really

Main Table

ID_PK

Incedents Table

MainTable_FK

Incident_PK

IncedentType

Summary_IncedentType
