    Combobox loads variable in URL?

    I need to load a variable from a Combobox into the tail end of a URL...ie:

    (script is on same layer as combobox)

    on (change) {
    loadMovie("http://somewebsite.com/flash/636050/" + myComboBox.selectedItem.data, "1");
    }

    The data set loaded into the combobox is the filename....ie:

    black.swf

    I load external swf's into the various levels of this app.

    Can't get it to work. Am I connecting the variable to the URL in the wrong way?

    I've also tryed putting the entire path/movie name url in the dataset but it doesn't work either.......

    Any thoughts?

    I put this on the first frame, top layer and it works like a dream. Hope the answer helps someone else......

    I also added another function just after this one called listener2 for another combobox on the same stage. It works also.........

    Thanks!

    <snip>

    listener = new Object()
    listener.change = function(evt){
    loadMovieNum("http://somewebsite.com/flash/outer/" + evt.target.selectedItem.data + ".swf",2);

    _root.dms1=(evt.target.selectedItem.data);
    _root.sku = "636020" + _root.dms1 + _root.dms2;
    }
