Easy Preloader Fix... Please Help!

I have a preloader with percentage instanced in my main so I can use it for my external SWF’s. Everything works fine until the end of my progress bar, it should go back to the Outro animation (of the preloader) at the end of 100% but just loads the external clip immediately. I am no pro at this by any means, but I should be able to figure it out. Here is the code I have to take me to the outro:

[color=black]_root.gotoAndPlay(22);[/color]

what am I doing wrong here?
