Default duplicating movie for buttons

i'm having some issues, i want to create buttons that have the same MC in them except the each button is named differently. I have the text as part of the movie since it fades in and out with the Background. I created a duplicate movie and re-named it the othe rbutton name. how do I change the text in the duplicate movie without changing it in the original?

You cannot do it that `way cause you cant set a path to a variable inside a button. You will need to have a button inside the mc insteat and a text box inside aswell. That way you can set different texts to different instances.
