I'm putting together a website and have run into an issue that I figured I'd post up about hoping someone can help me out.
I'm trying to have a button in one flash file load a new swf within an other file.
SWF(A) contains the navigation while swf(B) houses the main content.
I'm trying to set the files up in a way that clicking on a navigation button within file (A) will then load a new swf file on a new level within file(B).
I've been able to do the same thing loading a new swf within the same file, although I'm running into issues trying to get a new swf to load in a separate swf file.
Anyone have any thoughts...
Thanks in advance!

I know this hasn't been posted on in ages but I really like how you explain your work.
I was hoping you could help me with an AS2 flash file I've been working on.
I have the 1st SWF with just a loader and the 2nd SWF loading into that but all other SWFs load into the 2nd SWF's loader... the 3rd SWF loads fine but the 4th SWF overlaps the 3rd SWF but the 3rd won't unload it plays both at the same time. ( I hope this isn't too complicated)
Also, I was hoping to have buttons in the 3rd SWF tell it to go back on the timeline and play the 2nd SWF... I can't seem to figure out the code to get it to go backwards to a previous SWF...
I don't know how the AS2 would code either of my problems...
Thanks for your time!

This is a very old tute that uses AS1. Change your publish settings and it should work.
