Default Updating Dynamic Text

In Flash 8, using 1 frame, I've created a circle which appears on the stage at random positions. I created a dynamic text box below the circle and I am trying to get it to display the position of the circle as it changes.
I've assigned the text an instance name (posn) and variable (xposition), and referenced it in the code: _level0.posn.xposition = position;
but for some reason it's not working. The code doesn't have any errors but the "0" I put in as a placeholder never changes. Any ideas?

you don't need to give it a variable name, just an instance name
ActionScript Code:
_level0.posn.text = position;
