      okay imagine I have a movie clip nested as so...

      dave.drinking.message.....

      If I am within the m.c. 'message' and want to find something from drinking, I can
      go..... _root.dave.drinking
      However I don't want to tie myself to using _root, incase at some point my nesting changes and therfore will ruin my code. Therefore in the same way that you would go up a level '../' for diectories, is there a way of just going up one level from a nested movie clip?

      I thought _level0. etc might work, but this seems to act in the same way as root. I just want to be ablle to go back a directory as it were.

      I apologies if you can't understand what I have written. Thanks to any responders.
