Further to my earlier post the Branch property will also affect what
The help file reads
A setting of *'sequence', 'randomUnused', 'randomAny', or 'calculate'. *
*'sequence' *loops through the children of the decision icon in order.
*'randomUnused' *loops through the children in a random order, until all
the paths are used, or until the repeat property is satisfied.
*'randomAny'* loops through the children until the repeat property is
satisfied, and may visit the same child more than once.
'*calculate*' allows you to route the flow into a particular page of the
decision icon using the path property, which is zero based - to flow into
the third page, set branch to calculate, and the path property to 2.
The following models use the decision icon and may give further insight
into its use.
The only one that does not set repeat-"all" in the model code is text.rlm
which has repeat="1" and branch="calculate"
I don't know if this will help you to resolve your issue.
Hope it does :-)
