    Movieclip.goToAndPlay no longer works in Flash 8 Professional

    zodd
      I have several movies authored in Flash MX which have a single frame main timeline with buttons that control various movieclips in the frames using _root.movieclip.goToAndPlay() etc.
      However, as I am gradually revising these and republishing as Flash 8 , I have noticed that clicking the button with an action of _root.movieclip.goToAndPlay() no longer works, whether I publish for Actionscript 1 or 2. If I publish as Flash 6 from within Flash 8 Professional they work fine.
      Obviously the syntax has changed, but I must be dense because I can't figure it out from the documentation.
      Would be very grateful if anyone can help me out with this.
      Cheers
