External swf not loading text

hello all at Kirupa (love the site)

got a simple question, pls forgive im kind new.

i have a main movie that loads an external swf file on to the stage.

the external swf file conatains a dynamic text feild that loads an external text file.

when the swf (textbox) is loaded in to main movie i can see the outline of the text and the scroller but no text.

do i need to list the text in the main movie

it works when i do not externaly load the text into swf (textbox) but that is not what i want

any help would be cool
