So, let me just make sure I understand this correctly...
I want a variable that I can refer to in various movieclips I'm using in an FLA file... so, it has to be public.
A public variable has to be within a package.
This package has to be in the Actionscript file?
The AS file must be named the same as the FLA file?
The FLA file's document class /is/ the actionscript file? (Sorry if this is stupid...)
---If not, I'm confused somewhere...
The AS file's location is specific. (IE It has to be in a sub-file or something?)
