How to stop a movie

Hi There,

Am new to this group and flash as well…btw …this is my first post…this may look silly for you but please help me out…,

While Designing one movie i’ve created two movies(using ctrl+f8 whichch we generally use to create new symbols) and i’ve placed those movies in the first frame of the main movie.

For the main movie as part of actions i gave i control like clicking on the button will take you to next frame.

Problem: My problem is that i want the movies that i placed in first frame should run only once and after running for the first time it should stop.

i tried deleting movie from frame using _root.delete… but no luck…

Any suggestions…please…
