AS2 equivalent of duplicatemovieclip for dynamic movie clips


I am pretty new to AS3. Just wondering if there is a equivalent of duplicatemovieclip() for AS3. It needs to be able to be individually identified for dynamic text.

I tried to use toChild() to load it into a dynamically created MC, then loading that dynamically created MC onto the stage using toChild again. Dosen’t seem to display :*(

Please help!!!
