Loading external text files

how do you load an external text file if the movie clip isn;t on the top level. When i put : "loadvariableNm. “text.txt”,“0”, it doesn’t seem to work. Any help???

If you are using more than one level… ie using the loadMovieNum(); command to load your movies, then that command you have should work. The trick is, it doesn’t put the variables into the movie clip in that level it puts it into the “_root” of that level. The main timeline. So if you’re calling to a variable that you placed in level 1, you need to call to “_level1.myVariable”.
