You have to use the full path:
sym.getComposition().getStage().getSymbol("Object_1").getSymbol("Object_11").getSymbol("Ob ject_111").play(); --- access another symbol from within a symbol
sym.getComposition().getStage().getSymbol("Object_1").getSymbol("Object_11").getSymbol("Ob ject_111").$("image").play(); --- access another element from within a symbol
When I add either off these codes, the animation still won't play and nothing happens. I only want to play the timeline in "Object_1" via an element nested in several objects.
Have you refered the names of the symbols correctly? Sometimes it's easy to misspell it...
Can you post your files? I'll have a look at it.

For the sake of making things easier to explain on this forum I did not use the names I use in my file. The breadcrumb i mentioned above should be: Stage / Posteranimation / bubbles3 / dtw13hack. If you cant find it, double click on hack in the second rectangle a few times till you get at dtw13hack. So by clicking on dtw13hack I want the animation in Posteranimation to play from mark 4001 ms. So that the whole scene disapears and you go to a new page.
Thanks checking things out!
Nothing like looking at the original files.
At the Stage, go to "Posteranimation"/"bubbles2", and, in the Actions panel of the element "Group2" add a CLICK action and insert the following code:
You're a life saver! Got it to work.. looks like I went a symbol to far?
