you can't have duplicate function names and using the same instance name/reference for different objects is problematic, but you can have different objects '...pointing to the same frame'.
Thank you! I will try it in a few minutes.
I do have another question, if you don't mind me asking.
The shapes are blood vessels that sometimes overlap. When they are converted to symbols, a box encloses the new symbol which is overlaid over a smaller symbol. Is there a hierarchy (small symbols laid over larger ones) or z-layer that can be assigned?
Thank you for the swift response!

you can place the each movieclip in its own layer/frame. the order of the layers determines the z-ordering in the ide and published file.
