Hello
I need some serious help, I've got a image scroller that I can't get to work... I use the action

on (release) {
      _root.Vert.gotoAndPlay("Pic11");
}

Where "Vert" above is the space the main big picture is displayed and I've put labels pic11,pic22,pic33...

But for some reason it doesn't work, the fla can be found at > www.jeaninederouwe.co.za/in0de/vertical.zip It's about 3 megs (Flash 5.0) ... I know I'm asking for much but I've been pulling my hair out for past 3 weeks now and you guys are my last resort.

Thanks for your time.

vert is the name of the symbol in your .fla, but "portfolio" is the name of the instance.  i can't find where you have the on(release) action anywhere to test it, but give it a try.  swap your "vert" with "portfolio"

On (release){
portfolio.gotoandplay("pic11");
}

if you goto your main stage and left click once on your instance of the vert mc, look in the lower left hand corner, it will show you the instance name, you can change it there.  it's right under the dropdown that shows "movie clip".

aloha,
