The animation I just converted to a symbol won't animate. Why?

I recently started animating in flash (we're talking yesterday) and just put together a short animation. I'm attempting to convert this into a symbol in order to place a movie clip into any scene I'd like. However, I am having trouble getting the movie clip to animate afterwards. It's like it is just saving the 1st frame of the animation and not the entire thing.


It appears that someone was encountering a similar problem with this question, but I don't understand the responders answer. Could someone elaborate or provide a better explanation?


Thank you.

    Your posting this reminded me about your first posting.  We can pick it up there if you like.  One thing I should have asked in the other as well was what you are doing when you make the movie play?  There are different ways to do it and one will not make movieclips play.
