Help with bottons and loading text

Okay. I am doing this just to get some help. I have never been very good with Actionscript. Never really had a good tutorial I guess to help me out. Still looking for one. Okay basically heres my problem. I have these five buttons. Now what I want is for when someone clicks on a button for it to have some buttons under that come out. When you click on one of those buttons what I want it to do is load a box with scrollable text in it. But I just seem to be dumb and can’t figure it out. notes actionscript has always hated him Can anyone help me

_root.mytextArea.text = “a whole bunch of text and whatever else you want.”

click and drag the textarea component onto your stage and give it the instance name mytextArea and it should work.
