XML menu problems

I have three movies

  1. main fla 2. xmlmenu 3. external information fla

in the main fla is a container which loads the xmlmenu in the xmlmenu is a subcontainer which loads the external information.

When i test the xmlmenu on its own it loads everything fine but when I try to combine them all together nothing… I have run a trace and everything seems ok… no errors

  1. main = on (release) {
    loadMovie(“xmlmenu.swf”, “container”);


  1. xmlmenu = function setMenu(value) {
    loadMovie(value+".swf", “_root.container.subcontainer”);

I have tried everything can anyone help
