    Target problem; _root or _parent?

    ricklecoat
      I've got a main SWF that loads other SWFs inside itself (via a movie clip loader). I have a button (skip_btn) on the top level (root?) timeline of the child SWF that needs to talk to variables and functions that sit on the root timeline of the parent SWF. I've tried targeting these variables etc using both the _parent and _root parameters but neither seems to work. (I'm fairly sure that the code being accessed in the parent SWF is okay because I tested it via a temporary button on the parent SWF's timeline and all went as expected).

      I'm sure that I'm making a rookie error here but if anyone can help I'd be very grateful.
      I'll attach the my code; once again, for clarity, this code is on the top level timeline of the child SWF, and the functions and variables that it calls are on the top level timeline of the parent SWF.
