    Can an external swf movie clip control action on the parent timeline? 

      I have an instance where I'd like a movieclip inside of an external swf file to control action on the parent timeline... any ideas? Is it a function command? Here was my attempt at it...

      //importing external swf file "entrypage" using empty movieclip "container" on main parent timeline
      _root.createEmptyMovieClip("container",1);
      container.loadMovie("entrypage.swf");

      //functionality of external swf files movie clip "na9" which is contained inside "testnav" on external swf files main timeline...
      testnav.nav9.onPress = function() {
      _parent.gotoAndStop("theend"); //by clicking on the above movieclip, it moves to "theend" label on the parent timeline
      }


      Am I close?
