    SimpleButton does not have a btnOk property. It looks like mcPassport is a SimpleButton. Are you trying to access a child of mcPassport? If so, you can use getChildbyName. Or, you could change mcPassport to a MovieClip, which is dynamic and flash will create the property corresponding to the child, as you seem to expect.
