Default External .swf problems

ok, I have an external .swf I want to import and play in the main timeline. Since that said .swf file is smaller than the current flash file I am working on, I thought it would be best to drop it into a new movieclip symbol, so I can position it where it should be. But I can't seem do so. The external .swf won't load into the movieclip symbol.

maintime line movie is named index
holder movieclip symbol is named introanimation
movieclip symbol instance on main movie is labeled intro
external. swf file is named intromovie.swf
actionscript used on 1st frame of movieclip symbol:
ActionScript Code:
stop(); introanimation.loadVariables("intromovie.swf");

Am I doing something wrong here?

thanks a lot, people.

It's loadMovie, not loadVariables... But confusion on your container's instance name...

You should maybe check this tutorial...
