Create a repeating field, from a script??

You can't script the creation or editing of fields. This is part of the database structure, and FileMaker hasn't given the ability to automate the process.

There might be another way to do what you want, however. Perhaps some more information would be useful for a recommendation. Do you want to show only 20 repetitions of pay if the data in numb_pay is 20? Do you want to make sure that the 21st repetition (if there is one) can't be filled in?

If so, then I would recommend using relationships instead. They are much more flexible, and you could automate things using them.

For instance, if there is the number 20 in the numb_pay field, you could script the creation of 20 related records in a pay database and view those records in a portal.
