Sorry about posting twice I didn't realize I had I thought I deleted that post.
I have been playing around with the  but haven't been able to get them to work properly.
This is what I have tried:
I need windowtext = scott1
in another movie scott1 is created here (in relation to windowtext)
At first I tried:
windowtext = _parent._parent._parent.nav.w;
that gave me scott1 displaying in the scroll box.
After I read about  I was hoping to get away with.
windowtext = _parent._parent._parent.nav[w];
so I can acces the info held in the variable in the .txt file and diaplay that in the scroll box.
When I added the  to windowtext = _parent._parent._parent.nav[w]; and traced windowtext it came back un defined. Am I using the  wrong? if so how can i make:
windowtext = scott1; (scott1 located (_parent._parent._parent.nav.w
by accessing the scott1 from another movie?
