Stopping an imported .swf

Ok i have an external .swf that i am importing into another .swf file… My problem is that once the exteranal file is loaded, it plays and then doesn’t respect the stop command at the end of the file and just loops… whats the deal?

what’s the AS?

_root.stop();

?
if that’s the AS, you have to remove “_root.”

no. at the end of the imported file i just put “stop”
