I just did a little test and the code is fine. I think it must be that you
have not given the comboBox component an instance name of myComboBox.

Ah, but I have given it that instance name. Not only that, but the author of the book kindly makes available 'pre-cooked' versions of the exercises in the book that you can download to check how they are supposed to be done. So I downloaded the .fla file from the authors site, opened it (I noted also that it looked exactly like mine), performed a Test Movie on it (without changing anything) and got exactly the same errors.
Which makes me wonder if it's my installation of Flash that is the problem. I started with a Flash 8 Basic install, then bought an upgrade serial number online to move up to Professional. Maybe that's the problem?
Anyone have any ideas?
It's all resolved. Turned out that I needed to delete the ASO files. I'd never have known about that on my own, so many thanks go to the book's author, Phillip Kerman for his help.
Anyway, this one is done and dusted.
