Horizontal scrolling text bar

In my current project, I want to show the 1st 3 rows of an excel spreadsheet which has many columns, so I’m trying to put it in a
scrollable text box.
I opened as a library a flash mx file so I could use the scrollbar component
in my flash mx2004 file.
In frame 1 on my action layer I supposedly added the load var scripting
to open my file excel.txt(the excel file converted to a txt file, it begins with the text content=), it is in the same folder as the .fla file.

In the last frame on the action layerI have the script to stop,
and the last frame on the textbox layer is the keyframe with the text box.
When I test the movie, the box shows up with nothing in it.
I’d greatly appreciate any help you can give. Thanks.
