    What about the html?

    BTW, I have to start preparing dinner (yes, I do everything around here!), this may take a while!

    so sorry....here is the HTML file

    remember, the contactLeft.swf loads a picture in the center (with your method), and when the buttons are clicked then I want the title on the right to change from sales to web (web is the only link that has the action as of yet, but is also the one that is not working.

    here's the link to site again in case you need to see it

    ***deleted***

    what time is there now....here's 9 am

    Ok! Not too sure if this will work, because of the 2 localconnections you're using here (I can't test the picture one with the files I could get my hands on!), but the one in the contact form will work fine if you give the instance name of "departmentsMovie" to your "departmentsMovie" clip. You forgot to give it an instance name, so obviously it won't work as it is.

    Now, as I said, I can't test both localconnections that will occur, since I can get the picture one going with the htmls that I have, so check that out. I'm not too familiar with localconnections and you might need to close one, before you can open the other one.

    nope. It didn't work. However I came to realize that at the bottom I also need to frames. Because I want the bottom-left to stay there while the bottom-right changes. So esentially, the movie on the bottom-left will need to control the other two frames.

    If I were to duplicate the code that I used (from your files) what would I have to change if anything at all?

    thanks

    Oldnewbie have you had a chance to look into this. I really need to get past this obstacle. Do you think I'll be able to have two connections?

    Thanks in advance

    It's been a while... I'd have to refresh my memory on this whole thing, and might need access to your main movie's .fla., so I can test it out myself.

    Did you at least get the title thing going by adding the instance name?

    I did add the instance name but still nothing. I'll put all the files you would need in a zip folder.

    thanks so much for looking into this.

    Hope you get it.
