    Stopping at specific y coordinate

    MValentine
      I have some graphics that I want to load into my flash file above the stage and then slide into the stage area the stage area. I am obviously new to actionscript, but I thought this would not be too difficult to figure out.

      Here's what I have:

      On the frame:

      //load Graphic Behavior
      this.id_error_mc.loadMovie("smart_qc/id_error.jpg");
      //End Behavior

      On the movieClip named id_error_mc

      onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
      if (this._y<3) {
      this._y += 10;
      }
      }

      This movieClip is set at y -300. I want it to drop down and to stop at exactly y 3. I comes close, but it's off by a few pixels. When I adjust the speed, it's off even more. When I adjust the coordinates it's still off. I suspect I am going about it all wrong, but I have not been able to find anything on the web or in my actionscript books that can help me solve the problem.
