Below are the target paths for my project:

_root
---------charger

---------bigbox
----------------------spin


I want to access the movie clip "spin" from within the movie clip "charger." In the last frame of the "charger" movie clip, I have the following line of actionscript:

_root.bigbox.spin.gotoAndStop(8);

The above actionscript does not work. When I move the "spin" movie clip up one level and put it on the main timeline, I am able to access it with:

_root.spin.gotoAndStop(8);

Why wouldn't it work one level further down?
