Scrollbar content too long?

Hi there, can anyone help me with this: I have a scrollbar in which a very long list which I can’t make any shorter / smaller. Problem is, the script for the scroller demands that I place the text at 0,0 on the Flash axis, and the lenght of the text makes it run way down to the lower edge of the Flash workingfield. Somehow this makes the text run ‘beyond reach’ of the scrollbar; the scroller only shows about 2/3 of the list, and does not show the text beyond that point.

How can I extent the reach of the scrollbar??? Can I shift the 0,0 point of the Flash axis (maybe place it higher, so the text falls into the more ‘reasonable’ regions of the workingfield of Flash?). or… Any help much apprciated.
