Swf within a swf problem

Hi all,

I have a flash file that loads a menu based on an XML file. I also
have a file with a datepicker widget which uses an instance of the
ComboBox component. Both flash files work perfectly well separately.

However, when I merge files I have a problem the combobox component
restyles my dynamic menu fields (created with actionscript). I have
also tried loading one swf file within another but I get the same

Is there a way I can tell the main swf file to ignore actionscript in the other swf file and vice versa.

pls help


More info:

I was following this tutorial but as soon as I import a ComboBox component my styles are overwritten and my xml file is not imported.
