Am I an idiot?

I have attached the movie that I am having problems with - Now I had my students follow the fade text tutorial - it didn’t work. I though they were doing something wrong. . I tried it. . still didn’t work.

What am I doing wrong???

I have static text in a movie clip. Keyframe 1 8% alpha, Keyframe 30 100% alpha.

When I click enter in flash it works. If I click Ctrl+enter it does not work
