You have two ways to handle this and one is more elegant: you'll  
choose :-)

put 1 into myVariable1
repeat with tCount = 1 to the number of lines in fld "myField"
   <doMyStuff>
   add 1 to myVariable1
end repeat

Or:

repeat with tCount = 1 to the number of lines in fld "myField"
   -- use tCount directly here: this will need probably to use a 'do'  
command as:
   -- do "put foo into myVariable" & tCount
end repeat

Could probably help more with more details about what you want to  
achieve.
