Back button in verison 6

Is there a way or setting where I can "back" button like the "next" button, where the respondents can go to the previous responses....

Please note I am not seeking a browser back...

SSI Web Version 6 does not contain the architecture necessary to allow respondents to move backward in the survey except for through the browser back button functionality.  Adding a functional "Next" button requires significant code to accommodate changed answers, "limbo" data, re-displaying previous answers, etc. that cannot simply be coded into the existing program by a user.  If this is necessary functionality for your current project, I'd recommend upgrading to SSI Web version 8, which does have this functionality already built in.
