next repeat problem

I'm trying to get rid of blank lines in a global variable by using the
"next repeat" control structure to stop them from being put into the
variable in the first place. I keep getting errors-- but only when I
include the "next repeat" line. Here is the script:
global theList, order, theListPlus, currentListNam
put empty into theList
ask "Would you like to save your current list?"
if it is empty then beep
put it into field "listName"
put it into currentListNam
set the itemDelimiter to tab
repeat with i = 1 to the number of lines in field "daTable"
if line i is empty then next repeat
put item 1 of line i of field "daTable" & return after theList
put the number of lines of theList into order
put field "daTable" into theListPlus --extract the descriptors in
"daTable" is a table field. If I exclude the "next repeat" line I do
not get an error, but I get a lot of blank lines in the global variable
"theList". This, in turn, causes other problems down the line. The
error I get when I hit the "Apply" button is "if missing 'then'.
Is there a better way of excluding the blank lines in the field
"daTable" from my global variable?
