    Not sure why attachMovie clip isnt working in this instance

    The line: topSubNav.attachMovie("subText", "subText"+y, 0);

    doesnt seem to be working correctly. The spelling is correct.
    I am trying to attach a movie clip inside movieclip: topSubNav

    anyIdeas?

    for(x=0; x<3; x++) {
    for(y=0; y<2; y++) {
    topSubNav.attachMovie("subText", "subText"+y, 0);
    trace("name"+this._name)
    topSubNav.eval("subText"+y)._x = orgX;
    topSubNav.eval("subText"+y)._y = orgY;
    topSubNav.eval("subText"+y).label.htmlText = topLevel[x][y];
    trace("topLevel[x][y]" + topSubNav.eval("subText"+y)._y);
    topSubNav.navBGobj._height += 25;
    }
    this.attachMovie("topLevelItem","item"+x, x+4);
    eval("item"+x)._y = yPos;
    eval("item"+x)._x = xPos;

    ....... yada yada yada }

    well incase anyone is in the least bit interested... i figured it out

    i had to put the full path in the eval() statement

    old:
    topSubNav.eval("subText"+1)._y = yada yada.....

    new:
    eval("topSubNav.subText"+1)._y = yada yada.....

    this is helpful down the road i suppose.

    topSubNav.attachMovie("subText", "subText"+y, 0);
    isnt work properly because of for (x=...) cycle.

    first :
    you "overwrite" "subText"+y at same depth = 0.

    second :
    to say , you will use instead of 0(depth), y ... the problem appear after y full cycle, because ... every time the "x" cycle is incremented ... you overwrite again subText0, subText1 in y cycle.

    I hope Im not so confused in my poor english
