Can you dynamically create new fields based on a field value in Filemaker?

Post

Hey Guys... I'm in the process of evaluating Filemaker and a newbee. Can Filemaker dynamically create new fields based on a given field value? i.e. I have a document table that displays a field that asks users to enter a number for the number of documents they would like to upload to the database. Since it is my understanding that you can only have one document per container field the application would dynamically create new container fields based on the number the user inputed.

Is this at all possible with Filemaker. If so can someone point me in the right direction on how this might be accomplished?

thanks in advance.
