Storing movieclips in variables

hi, i need to store a movieclip in a variable to make it rotate, how can i do this. here is my code so far. i need to do it this way, so the movieclip clicked rotates perminantly and not just when clicked. THANKS

objects is a movieclip with 4 unNamed movieclips in it.

var i;
var tkStore:String;

function tk(evt:MouseEvent) {;;

function detail(evt:Event) {

i have worked it out now :stuck_out_tongue:

tkStore should be

var tkStore;

and should equel the target, not its name
