attachMovie Question


my problem seems to revolve around attaching and removing the same movie clip a number of times in the same movie. The first time I attach the movie clip it functions perfectly - but when it is removed and later re-attached it no longer works and the ‘fla’ no longer seems to recognise its instance name or its status as a movie clip.

I suppose my question is:

If you attach a movie clip and then remove it, can you then re-attach it later with the same instance name and expect it to function in the same way?
Cheers for any help and advice…
