loadVars has become manyHours

Hi. Thank you for your help.
I am using MX.
I am simply trying to load an external .txt file.
I have in my .fla attached, in the only frame of _root.news_events.scroll_movie.main the following code I found in another post. I have used code from Flash Help, other posts on the forum, etc. and can’t get anything to work. I do appreciate your time. Thank you again…
loadText = new LoadVars();
loadText.onLoad = function() {
myText.text = this.myText;
// I also tried:
myTextvar = new LoadVars();
myTextvar.onLoad = function(success) {

if (success) {

main.myText.html = true;
main.myText.htmlText =

} else {

trace(“Text not loaded”);


//Also, if you know and could explain what the .html in the code immediately above has to do with anything. In the .zip including .fla, .swf and .txt files I downloaded from the post, there was no mention of or physical .html file, except just above.
Have a great day…
