    Trouble with dynamic text and symbols


      I'm having trouble with dynamic text. I have a symbol with dynamic text  fields in it.  In the action script file I want to change the text of  these text fields like this: textFieldName.text = "new text"; but  nothing happens. I can not see any text when I play the movie.

      Also I tried adding a dynamic text field directly to stage and change  the text with textFieldName.text = "new text"; I can see the new text  when I play the movie. Then I added my symbol that has the dynamic texts  in it, and the text of the text field that is directly on stage  disappears. When I delete my symbol, the text is back there.

      I'm using Flash CS5 and ActionScript 3.0

      Thanks for your help
