    In a movie with an external dynamic .txt or .xml file, which loads other movies in a containerclip, which also has an external dynamic .txt file - why does the mainmovie with ex. a .txt file called test.txt, loads in this test.txt file in the other movies in the containerclip, eventhough they have totally other names those textfiles?

    Please flash guruīs, help me out :-)

    Thanks,
    Thomas

    Is each files variable named differently?
    or does all textfiles start with defining the same variable name?
    eg
    -----texfile1 start ------
    myVar=hello
    -----textfile1 stop -----
    -----texfile2 start ------
    myVar=hello2u2
    -----textfile2 stop -----
    and you might end up having "hello" or "hello2u2" in all textfields
    The right thing would be to;
    -----texfile1 start ------
    myVar1=hello
    -----textfile1 stop -----
    -----texfile2 start ------
    myVar2=hello2u2
    -----textfile2 stop -----
    and refer each textfield to "myvar1" or "myVar2"

    maybe?

    .Txt files

    Hallo Leif,
    I can give you an example - this is what I write in the first keyframe of every movie in order to load the .xml file:

    "_root.loadVariables("factstext.xml", "");"

    and in another movie:

    "_root.loadVariables("historytext.xml", "");"
