    Using loadVariables with nested SWF movies

      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...


      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.
