    Hi,

    A simple, but might not be the best, is an 'outer' data source loop.  

    Create a new Excel spreadsheet with a 'iteration' column with four rows. E.g. 1,2,3,4.  This is your "configurable number of times loop".

    Before your original Data Source step, create a new Data Source Step called something like 'Outer loop', that links to the new spreadsheet.

    Finally, create a new Data Source loop that links back to the new 'outer' data source.
