Easy Scripting Question, Not Easy for me though


I am pretty new to scripting in AS3 and want to be able to creat a drop down menu. I’ve created the menu and have the mouse overs and outs working perfectly. But I need to be able to make the actual buttons inside my movie clips work. I want to click the button and have it navigate to Scene1 (parent) and then go to a frame label. I’ve written the following script:

function navAbout(event:MouseEvent):void {

btnAboutAuthor is the instance name of the button. problem is that when I test this clip I get an error:

1120: Access of undefined property _parent.

Can anyone help me with this. I’m sure it’s a pretty simple fix, but can’t find anything on the net that shows how this is done. Thanks.
