    Automatically change text from external file

      Greetings all,
      I looked to see if this was asked already but couldn't find anything so here goes.

      I am trying to make an swf file that will pull bible scriptures from a text file. Might have about 15 different scriptures and not sure if I should have them in one text file or seperate text files but what I am trying to do is to have the flash file random choose one of the scriptures and automatically change every 10 or 15 seconds and then just continue to do this while it is on the screen. I have worked with importing one line of text from a file but never to randomly select 1 of 15 scriptures. Assuming there is some way to randomize the variables but not sure where to start. I am Using Flash CS3 on a Win XP machine. Any assistance would be appreciated. If there is a tutorial out there that shows this and someone can point me there that would rock also.

      Thanks again,
