I think that by a "reverse repeat region" you mean that you want to start at the end of the record set and go to the begnining.

There are 2 ways to do this:

1) If you have a method of accessing each record then you can manually go through the record set in reverse order.  This is easy to do in some programming languages and hard in others.

2) The easiest way to accomplish this is to reverse sort your record set and then use a normal repeat region.

So if you data normally was 10 17 29 38 45 87 111
Then you could sort in descending order to get 111 87 45 38 29 17 10


I hope that helps.
