Importing Flash Movie

First off…I am just learning Flash so please don’t rip me a new one for not knowing this but I am trying to import the Flash Movie from the “Loading Text from External Sources” tutorial in Flash MX. It will come up but I cant seem to get it to link to the text pages (ie. text1.txt, text2.txt, etc.). I have them in the same folder but it doesnt work. Maybe I am exporting wrong. Please help.
