    moving an object in the stage

      Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. I have an object that is serving as a background for a flash website. The background object (a table) moves and rotates around when clicked, exposing different parts of the table on the stage when the user clicks.
      Here is as close an example as I can find:

      My problem is when i want to transition between two points on the table, the table has to rotate and move.. and by just using a motion tween between the two points results in the table rotating off the stage for a few frames (thus exposing the background and making it look really cheezy). I was trying my hand at using motion guides, but can't do it with any accuracy.

      So, my question is: Is there a way to guide an object as it rotates and moves so that it doesn't move off screen? (there is plenty of room on the table if i can just guide its path through the 2 second transition). Thanks for any support.
