The Count() function works well on repeating fields !

I know a table would be better but this is left over from previous FM versions.
It's pretty easy to move data from a repeating field into a related table. Import Records is made to order for that. Updating scripts and layouts, on the other hand would take a bit of work to update to use the new structure. But it's a change worth considering for the gains in flexibility.
