    Using loadVariables with nested SWF movies

    Uttergenius
      I have a .swf with a dynamic text box that loads an external text file. Using both loadVars and loadVariables I can see the that text is loaded when i play just that file but when i nest the .swf into a movie clip in a container movie the text doesn't appear. I've used many different path and variable variations but with no joy. The nested .swf is loaded using this syntax...

      loadMovie("storyboard.swf",'_root.mainmask.inside_loader');

      the syntax I'm using on the storyboard.swf movie to load the text are variations on

      loadVariables("news.txt" this);

      I've tried playing with _parent and _root to get from the top level of the container movie to the nested one but can't hit the spot.

      Thanks in advance for any help.
