    Question Loading text into Movie Clips!

    I have been trying to load text from an external file into a movie clip inside my main project timeline. I've read a few tutorials covering importing text to Dynamic Text fields and I have done it a few times, but hhe problem is when I try and load the text to a movie inside my main movie. The tutorials don't cover that very well!

    my webpage is at http://web.umr.edu/~fltsim/testpage/test5.html and all the attached files are in http://web.umr.edu/~fltsim/testpage/
    (if you care)

    i'm using the following code in my first frame

    loadVariables("text.txt", "_root"); //for dynamic text not inside movies
    loadVariablesNum("text.txt", "softwaremov");
    loadVariablesNum("text.txt", "hardwaremov");
    loadVariablesNum("text.txt", ae180mov);
    loadVariablesNum("text.txt", projectsmov);

    Thanks for any help you can provide!

    I don't know if this is the problem or not.

    But when you use loadVariablesNum() you have to provide a level to which the variables have been loaded. Try using loadMovie() instead and see if it works.

    If that's not the problem, try absolute targeting.

    _root.object.method()

    That way, no matter where you put the code, as long as you keep the object in the same level, it should work (use _level5.object.method(), or whatever level the object is on, if you're not targeting a root path)
