How to define field repetitions?

Post

     Hi,

     This is driving me crazy...  I have a calculation field that is stored as a container.  'Storage' is global and 'Maximum Possible Repetitions' is 3 in the field options.  This field was in one of the FileMaker templates, so I didn't create it to begin with, and its purpose is to show a sort indicator.  I understand the programming behind when the indicator points up or down or neither.  What I can't figure out is how to change the indicator graphics themselves.

     I created a mock-up of the 3 states for this field so I could flip between them individually, and I tried importing a graphic directly into the field when it was in the correct state.  The graphic would show immediately, but when I click away and click back to that state it doesn't show anymore.  How or where do I access the three possible states, or repetitions of this field?  This is very confusing!

     Thanks for any help.
