My issue is driving me crazy!

I have a site developed in Flash. I have a main movie that calls several external flash movies. (we'll call the main movie layer 1)
In the main movie, I have instances (placeholders) for each quadrant of information.

There is one section, called the "Ariba/Java Cafe" where, if you click the button for "Full Story", I want to show a list of solutions on the left, and when they click on them, it displays dynamic text on the right.

You can see an example here...   http://www.theshelbygroup.com/shelbydev/index.html

Go to the Ariba/Java Cafe section, and click "FULL STORY" to see what I'm talking about...only the first two buttons on the left are programmed.

MY ISSUE IS THIS - When I preview my movie within Flash MX2004, the buttons work fine, and call the correct dynamic text...but when I publish it, they don't work...it only shows the dynamic text for the first button...WHY???
