    simple math and a variable in an mc instance name

    NickTheNameless
      i have several movie clips with instance names in the format of screened1, screened2, screened3, and so on. i am trying to reference a movie clip as shown below, but it's not working. what am i doing wrong? how do i fix it?

      this.screened[numOfItems-8].transform.matrix = F1toP0;

      the transform, matrix and all of that works fine. but when i add the information between [ ] to make reference to the movie clip instance name, no go. numOfItems is a number, and when run trace on it.... it does return a value in the output.
