    Can you link buttons to labels in a separate movieclip?

    everebo

      I'm fairly new to flash so please excuse my lack of knowledge...using AS3

      basically I had a situation arranged where when a button was clicked and flash would then display a certain image by jumping to a label on the timeline, and by clicking a different button a different image would be shown. this was working pretty well but for layout reasons I had to split these buttons and the timeline that they relate to up into separate movie clips.
      obviously the buttons dont do anything now,

      but what i'm hoping to find out is how I can link these items back up despite them being in separate movie clips.  is this possible?
      i'm just wanting them to do the same thing they did when they were both in the same movieclip.

      any help is extremely welcome

      thank you
