You can do that with movieclips. You could change your graphic element to be a acting as a movieclip (top of panel) or change the graphic property to be a movieclip in the library.

BTWif your graphic is already on the stage,  if you change its property in the library you will also need to change your graphic to be a movieclip in the top panel because it is not done automatically in that case.

Hi mate, in animation we can do this kind of looping with a wrapper container as explained in this article:

http://flash-powertools.com/keeping-cycles-flexible-for-easy-re-timing-by-using-service-frame-and-wo...

 

Essentially you nest your Symbol A (which has 15 frames) inside another Graphic container B and there only show 2-10, i.e. 9 frames. On the outside, you loop B.

 

Hope this helps!
