    not exactly sure what you mean. Are you wanting to display text in a MC from an external source? Or....

    If you just want to be able to set the text in a textbox within that MC then all you need to do is create a textbox, and make sure to give it a variable name, and make the textbox dynamic. Then, making sure to use the right hierarchy, you can change the text by saying something like:

    _root.yourMC.yourTextbox = "your text";

    and that will change the text. If you want someting completely different then I/we need more info por favor
    Uh...where's my underwear?
