Hello experts,

I'm writing a website in flash and have a menu system which, when a user clicks an item, rotates a movieclip to a new position.

My source file is at

I've noticed that if you click on the buttons from left to right, when it gets to button 5 it rotates the wrong way! Does anyone know how to fix this?  It's for a client and i need it really quickly.

Thanks in advance,

Hi nishasrilankan!

Thanks for that, it does the job brilliantly!  I've downloaded the source for it and am getting an unexpected file format error, could you please try backsaving it to 5 for me?  That's be grand.
