I'm rather embarrassed to say that now I'm working in flash 5 I can't remember how to play my movie clips (how silly!!!!!!!) I no it's very simple coding but I've just forgotten it! . The clip is stopped until I asked it to be played.
I've got this code so far but what happens is it just goes to that frame in the movie clip (and not plays it.) The movie clips name is square

stop ();
tellTarget ("_root.square") {
gotoAndPlay (2);

Any help would be great as I've been trying to find this very simple code for ages!
I'm not a beginner either but there you go!

Thanks Digitals
