Scroll text disappears when loaded as an external swf

Hi. I’ve searched for an answer to this problem and only found one thread with the same problem which wasn’t answered. So here goes. If you have the answer then please post it.

I have a swf file that contains scrolling text (not external text. the text is written in an actionscript frame in the movie). The text and scroll arrows work fine when I preview the movie. However when this swf is loaded into the main movie the text is not visible. Can anyon help with this. Do I need to insert a _parent. before the scrollableText or aomething. Thanks for your help
