I CANNOT GET gotoAndPlay working

simply, i am wanting to use
[AS]on (press) {
gotoAndPlay (“9”, “1”);

and it just doensn’t work, all it does is either reload the frame i am on, or continues to the next scene.
Can someone please tell me why this is not working!?

PLEASE DO NOT tell me it is in the help files, or online somewhere, because i cannot find a helpful resource, which is why im posting on this forum, so from past experience, I would appreciate it if you would not criticise me for not being able to find it… but thanx anywayz ppl. (and also don’t tell me not to use abbreviations) i can spell, i find is easier to use some little shortcuts.
