    Loading an External .swf file into a specific area in Flash 8

    Anyone tell me how to do this??
    I recently upgraded to flash 8 from MX.

    It says that my code has no errors but I do not see the external .swf file I need to load in my page loading???

    here is my code:
    loadMovie("AGD_gallery.swf",viewerholder);

    *I have a keyframe with the above action code attached to it to load the external .swf..but I can't see anything!

    Anybody able to give me a refresher???


    Thanks in advance!

    I actually upgrade to Flash 8 from MX just a short time ago.

    The main .fla was designed in Flash MX.....I have since saved it in Flash 8 to continue to build it in Flash 8.

    Since doing this I am not able to get any external .swf file to load

    Hope ya know what I mean..
