Default loadVariables problems

I am making a calendar, and there needs to be a function so that, when the correct kets are pressed, and a date is clicked, it asks for a password, and allows the user to input information for that day, which is sent to an external text file, for later use.
Also, when a date is clicked, the data for that day needs to be displayed.
I have the password system and what-not working.
The year, month number, and day number, are accesible by the following paths:

Year - _root.Year
Month - _root.month_num
Day - _root.daytoedit

The text field where the data being send is typed is _root.editor.edittext

The day number is displayed by a dynamic text box, which is inside an MC, all the date holders are giving different instance names, in a grid pattern, as follows:
a1 a2 a3 a4 a5 a6 a7
b1 b2 b3 b4 b5 b6 b7
c1 c2 c3 c4 c5 c6 c7
d1 d2 d3 d4 d5 d6 d7
e1 e2 e3 e4 e5 e6 e7
f1 f2 f3 f4 f5 f6 f7

I already have it programmed so that the year/month/day is properly displayed when a date is clicked.
I'm just not even remotely familiar with loadVariables, the whole sending, and retrieving.
I have looked at tutorials, but they talk about the function as if you have extensive knowledge on the subject.
So, here's what you'll need to know.
The path to the text box where the info needs to be displayed is _root.dayinfo.Text

To see the calendar, Click Here and ignore the random stuff on the side.

I'm just confused by the whole loadVariable coding process. ANY help would be appreciated.

Send a message via AIM to billstoudt

you would want to use LoadVars() not loadVariables for this.
