Re-starting a stopped playhead from where it stopped

[font=Times New Roman][size=3]Hello,

I know this is a really rookie question but it has been troubling me for a while.
I usually set up a loop for the playehead to keep checking to see if the user presses a button but there MUST be an easier way.

I have a movie and it stops at a frame.
When the user presses the button it will go to another frame and stop there, and when the user presses another button the playhead will go to yet another frame and stop there…

on (release) {

Unfortunately this makes then entire movie just start playing again from the beginning.

Is there a simple way to re-start the playehhead from where it has stopped and go to a specific frame and stop there?

Thank you for all of your help so far![/size][/font][font=Arial][size=2][font=Arial][/font][/size][/font]
