are you wanting to move text or move an actual movieclip?
why wont a component work for you (either the textbox or scrollpane?)
where are you having trouble in the tutorials?

I used a componet 'scrollpanel' and all I did was exported my flash movie, and in the property insepter I typed in the URL in the content box.

I cannot use scrollpanel cuz in my movie clip , I have dynamic attachMovie in there.
So although I try to export my movie clip and set the correct URL in scrollpanel content box, it does not work.

If I add some static img on my movie clip, I can see in my scrollpanel. BUT i just cannot see my dynamic stuffs by using attachMovie().

So do you have any idea, how i can use it.??

Are you attaching a movie that is external or that is in the flash libray?

I just developed one for a project, and it took me 7 hours to think up and put together. It is so hard to make it is axualy for sale for $10.00 online and some other developers are buying it.

Ok, I think I have what will help you. I did a search and came up with 'add a scroll bar' on the site. Hope it helps, if not tell me. Click Here. (http://www.actionscript.org/tutorials/intermediate/scrolling_a_text_box_II/index.shtml)

Sorry I didn't relize that it was external text. But, it can still work just set the variables in action script. Hope you get this.
