I asked this question the other day but did not get the help I need. I am sure it was the right info but I do not understand.

I have a movie called main.swf and it has a MC in the main timeline of the forth scene called musicMC. It loads another .swf file called sample.swf to the stage when you click a button inside the main.swf movie. Now I need a button inside the sample.swf movie to control the music MC inside the main.swf movie. I was told to do it like this:

_root.musicMC.gotoAndStop("stop"); - not sure if this is correct

_parent. - do I need this?

Please help me understand this. It is driving me crazy! Thanks for your time and your help.
