    Trying to access a specific movie clip with a string

      Ok, what I am trying to do is create as many movie clips as I need and then access those movie clips using string values. These string values are stored in an array and coincide with a given movie clips instance name. Check out the following code:

      I think my problem is that Flash is trying to call movie clip methods on a string instance. I'm not sure how to type cast in Flash, or even if it is possible, but how would I access the strings as movie clips?
