Repeating fields -- how they display, how to have a second field contingent upon them

Post

     I would like to have a repeating field, which activates a second, contingent field only when it is completed. In this case, I want to record all the different kinds of pottery I have found from a drop-down menu (black gloss, cookware, thin wall, etc.), and then to enter a numerical value representing how many pieces of each type were found.

     If possible, it would be great to make it so that I'm not forced to specify a certain range under "Show repetitions" (e.g. 1-4) under the inspector; instead, the form would ideally add another line only as needed (up to a maximum), so it doesn't take up too much unnecessary room on the screen if, for example, there is only one kind of pottery found.

     Hope that makes sense and thank you in advance!
