Using For Loops to insert Movie Clips

I am still new to AS3.

I have four (at some point a lot more) unique movie clips that I have set the properties for exporting using actionscript.

I would like to place these movieclips on the stage using a “for loop”.

Here’s the code I have attempted, but AS3 doesn’t like. The code that is commented out works, but I don’t want to have to write lines upon lines of code.

I have also attached the file I am working with.

[INDENT]import flash.utils.*;

var myClip=new Array(4);

for (var i:int=0; i<4; i++) {
myClip*=addChild(new “a”+i());

//myClip[0]=addChild(new a0());
//myClip[1]=addChild(new a1());
//myClip[2]=addChild(new a2());
//myClip[3]=addChild(new a3());


thanks in advance
