passing variables

I have created a Flash movie and this movie has a movie clip within it. I want to be able to pass a variable called count from the small movie to the master movie where it is positioned.

Is this possible and how do I refer to it. the smaller movie has an instance name of P1.

Thanks for the help.

Hi Richardh,

When you have a 'main' movie called MovieA and a 'child' movie called MovieB, the instance you can say in your child movie  
Set Variable: "../:Count" = Value (any number, ofcourse).
A great help for me was when you test the movie, Click in the Control menu - List Variables (Ctrl+Alt+V).
The variables in Flash are horrible, but when you know the trick, is easy as it goes.
Good Luck!
When you have further questions, feel free to ask.
