    Try this

    Hi
    Try doing this

    loadMovie ("movie.swf", "a");

    Where the movie you are loading is movie.swf
    And the clip which you are loading the movie in has an instance name "a"

    Hope this helps

    Hi

    I sent you the file ..
    whats happening with your code is :when u are loading in clip1 ..it takes up all the properties of clip1 and hence your movieclip dissapears. but if u go inside clip1 and place another movieclip say clip2 inside it and load the .swf in this second clip
    on (release) {
    loadMovie ("1.swf", "clip1.clip2");
    }

    YOur problem will be solved

    Hope this solves the problem

    Hi
    I think u r created movie ok.
    Think it 1.swf and you want to load movie 2.swf ok.
    Just u creat one button in movie 1.swf at bottom and write in action

    OnRelase()
    {
    loadmovie("2.swf",1);

    }
    first parameter takes movie file name
    second parameter takes level.
    i.e. Priority which as to show first level.
    foe example
    1.swf having 0 level
    2.swf having 1 level
    like go on
    if 5th level movie loaded, we are not unloaded and we loaded 2nd level movie i.e. 2.swf ,5th level movie over lap movie 2nd level we can't see movie at all.
    i think u will understand

    regards
    shree
