We are wanting to create a survey which has a menu of sorts. From a drop-down, select an area to answer. Then go back to the original drop-down list and select another. I have created the drop-down list question. I have linked each response to an area to address. I'm stumped at how to direct back to the initial drop-down menu. What am I missing here?

Thanks for any help!

Limesurvey is following the standard survey behaviour, which usually is linear. If you skip questions you usually can't go back.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

As holch says, there is no "looping" in LimeSurvey. The easiest solution may be to create several drop-down lists, each followed by the "areas" so after completing one "area" the next question will ask to select another "area".

Maybe the Map question type (a short text question with some additional question attributes) also does the trick if you want to ask for a certain location?
