Question Control a Nested MovieClip from a button component inside a seperate MovieClip.

I am a beginner in using Flash and Action Scripting.

This is the Scenerio:

I want to control a movieclip that is inside of another movie clip.
I control it from a button component that is inside of a seperate movie clip.

test = button component instance name
test1 = function
test2 = Movieclip instance name
test3 = Movieclip instance name
testbutton = movieclip name where button component is located

I am able to control a movieclip on the main timeline with the following AS 3.0:

test.addEventListener (MouseEvent.CLICK, test1);
function test1(event:MouseEvent):void

I want to control a movieclip inside MovieClip1.

I tried this:

test.addEventListener (MouseEvent.CLICK, test1);
function test1(event:MouseEvent):void

The movie loaded fine when I tested but got this error when I pressed the button:

TypeError: Error #1010: A term is undefined and has no properties.
at Untitled_fla::testbutton_26/test1().

Please help!!!!!!!!!
