Counting the number of iterations in a repeat

Hello - I'm currently working on a survey that involved revisiting and using data from multiple iterations within a previous repeat - I have figured out how to do this with a repeat that has a specific number of iterations, but I am trying to get the same functionality with an indefinite loop. Is there any way to access the number of a specific iteration within a loop? (as in 1 for the 1st repeat, 2 for the second, etc)

Hi there,

position(..) inside a loop should get you the count.

Thanks. Is there a way to implement this within xlsforms or would I need to directly edit the xml file?
