Does anyone know if there is a standard for showing a repeated process
in a flow chart?

I have a flowchart where a certain process is followed. There is a
decision "Ifs" that is followed by SEVERAL decision "Ifs".

One of tertiary "Ifs" determines all is OK and goes BACK to TWO of the
possible initial "Ifs" and then closure...

So is there any way, without a LOT of crossing lines, to give a symbol
and simply indicate which flow to follow for the two repeat processes?

Thanks in advance
