Linking scene/lable on a map


I’m trying to make a map.
It consists of a few scenes.

At the moment I’m trying to get from the main map to the next scene.

So I labled one of the layers on the 2nd scene “nswmap”.

On the 1st scene I turned the word “New South Wales” into a button, and added:

on (release) {

When I test it, the button is unclickable (ie the cursor doesn’t change), and I get the following error:

**Error Scene=Australia, layer=nswword, frame=18:Line 1: Mouse events are permitted only for button instances
on (release) {

Total ActionScript Errors: 1 Reported Errors: 1**

Any help appreciated,
Regards, Amstaff.:cap:
