I use loadVariablesNum ( "flashVars.txt",0 ); to load some variables in frame 1 then in frame 2 I use:

tellTarget ("Bar1") {
gotoAndStop (/:bar1);

where bar1 is a variable from the file with a value of 10 and I want clip "Bar1" to gotoAndStop at frame 10 of the clip. All works well if I set a variable, but it will not recognize the values from the file. If I use a text field to bar1 it shows the 10 just fine. Why does my tellTarget not work?
