This function returns the number of repetitions of a repeating field as it is currently formatted on a layout, and the orientation of the field repetitions (horizontal or vertical).
The number of repetitions of fieldName as it is currently formatted could be different from the number of repetitions when the field was defined. If fieldName isn’t a repeating field, it returns 1 vertical.
FieldRepetitions(“Customers”;“Data Entry”;“Business Phone”) returns 3 vertical if the Business Phone field is defined as a repeating field with five repetitions but is formatted to only show three repetitions in a vertical orientation on the Data Entry layout.
