Page Variable data cannot be repeated

I am unable to use Page Variable (which has data set from a Data Variable) as the repeating data structure. But it does work with the “original” Data Variable, which has same content.

Should I be able to use that Data Variable as repeated data as well?

Is your Page Variable “Variable value type” a List? Also, is the “List item type” an Object? When I have my Page Variable setup this way it shows as available for the Repeat capabilities.
