Hi guys,
I知 facing a major problem with a script that I知 doing, i think it's pretty simple but i can't figure this out.
I知 loading variables (numbers) from a text file with a loadVariables("poll.txt",_root); action, i can see the variables when i run the swf file. but the problem is that i'm trying to have a "total" that counts all the variables and dump them in there.
I知 using variable1+varables2; but it doesn稚 work. i think it's because it's loading it from an external files please help. The Swf file will be in flash 6.

thanks in advance
Sam

Flash loads the variables as strings despite you have the numbers in the file. I think if you add 123 to 456 (for example) you have the result 123456 instead of 579.

Try to add this way:
Number(variable1)+Number(variable2).
