Probably the path to text boxes txtBox1 and txtBox2 isnt right.

This line of code is placing your data into mydata on the main timeline...
myData.load("http://localhost/flash/myData.php");

if this is inside a MC...
txtBox1.text = myData.textbDesc1;

then you will need to reference the mydata on the main timeline ie.
txtBox1.text = _root.myData.textbDesc1;   //or
txtBox1.text = _parent.myData.textbDesc1;

he declared myData inside mc, so the myData is not an issue. It can be only txtBox.
