    Can't get button in sub movie to link back to main timeline

      Hi All.....
      First, thank you for helping me! I am pulling my hair out. I know there is an easy answer to this question, but I can't figure it out.

      I have my main timeline (Scene 1) and then on frame 5, I have a movie that plays for about 70 frames (within itself). On the main timeline it is only 3 frames long, and I have an action at the top layer to stop at the first frame.

      At the end of the 70 frame movie, I have a "next" button; the action is in normal mode;

      on (press) {
      gotoAndPlay("Scene 1", 11);
      }

      I am ultimately telling this button to go back to the main timeline (scene 1) and continue on with the next movie.

      When I publish, the movie goes through just fine, gets to the next button, I press it and it goes to the 11th frame of the that same movie, instead of the 11th frame of the main timeline (scene 1).

      Help! I appreciate it...let me know if I left anything out...........
