you need to use the path from the timeline that contains your code to the timeline that contains your textfield.
for example, if your code is on the main timeline and your textfield has instance name tf and is a child of the movieclip mc that's on the main timeline, you could use:
I didn't use any code...what i did was created a input text field on the main time line and gave it a var name using the properties menu. Then i gave all the dynamic text fields the same var name as i did with the input text field. The dynamic text fields that are in the main timeline all work, but the one's inside mc's don't :-S
I didn't use code, because i don't know how :-(
the same var name won't work because the textfields are on different timelines. try prefixing your var names with _root. (as in _root.yourVarName instead of yourVarName).
Thanks once again Kglad...it worked ;-)
