    post the code or include a snapshot to give us a better idea and we might just be able to help you out. you've probably just specified an invalid path to the text file, but i'd have to see the code to be sure.

    Did you embed the font used in the textfields?
    In the textfields' properties, hit the Character tab, and select Embed All...

    Since you're loading the variables on the _root level, try adding _level0 to your variable's name in your textfield's Var box...

    _level0.About_Text

    rather than just About_Text alone.

    This is all assuming your text file starts off with
    About_Text=Bla..Bla..Bla..
