Targeting variables in a loaded swf?


im pretty new to flash, only been using it about a week and a bit, and am a little lost with targetting and wondered if anyone could help.

i’ve got a movie called ‘main.swf’ and in it is an empty mc with instance name ‘loc’ which loads an external swf called ‘photo.swf’.

if i have a variable inside ‘photo.swf’ called ‘ABC’ am i right in assuming to target it from main.swf it would be:

"" ?

somehow i get the strong feeling this isn’t right
