if you create an empty movie clip with the exact same size as the external swf, you can just move that empty movie clip where you want and load it into that.
Hope this answers what yuor trying to do...
Where exactly do I adjust the coordinates if it is creating the movieclip on the fly?
It isn't creating it on the fly.
Insert a new symbol and give it the instance name placeholder_mc. Drag that onto your timeline and scale it so that it is the exact same size as your external swf. Then just align the empty movie clip on the stage where you want to align the external swf.
This just tells it "Okay, take this external flash file, and stick it INTO that empty movieclip"
Got it, thanks for the help!
