I may not totally understand what you are trying to
do but it sounds like you are looking for a repeat
structure that will change fTime to 1,2,3 etc.

repeat with fTime = 1 to number of lines in fld whatever
put item 5 of line fTime into whereyouwant
end repeat

A repeat structure similar to the above would repeat
for 10 time if the field had 10 lines and then it would
automatically add 1 to fTime on each repeat & quit
after it executed the 10th time.

If it does not work properly I may have written it a
little wrong because I am use to hypercard but just
ask if it doesn't.
