    External SWF referencing help


      The problem I'm running into is that I have an external flash file that loads into the "main" movie by using a button and the loadMovieNum(114);. Now in the external swf, I have a movie clip that in the last frame has this action _root.gotoAndPlay("portfoliohome");

      However, that action won't return the playhead to the targeted frame in the "main" movie. I thought that would work as when you have an externally loaded swf that the _root of the "main" movie became the external movie's _root. I did a trace on _root in the external file when it's loaded in the "main" and it comes back as _level114.

      I'm not using a movie clip container...should I? I'm probably forgetting information you may need, so please ask!
