URL in Flash Menu not working

I'm having some trouble getting a button in my flash menu to work right.  I know it's probably simple - but I'm a newbie so I'm having some trouble.

Here is the link for the file:
http://www.thelifefocuscenter.com/flash/0903.zip

It's the second button labeled About Us.  It should be linked to this url:  
http://www.thelifefocuscenter.com/aboutus/index.htm

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You need to post the fla not the swf.  We can't do anything to the swf.

Some times absolute links don't work or cause problems when on the same site, try using a relative link eg  - getURL("aboutus/index.htm");

The fla is now up under the same link above.

I've tried relative links - I have more trouble with those - for some reason.

Take a look at the file.

Ok here is the file  http://theyac.org/experts/0903.fla I had to change some stuff like you moved the movie/button off of the where it was so it didn't fade in with the others.  Then You had this on (rollOver) {
      gotoAndPlay(2);
}
on (rollOut) {
      gotoAndPlay(11);
}

on (release) {

      //Goto Webpage Behavior
      getURL("http://www.thelifefocuscenter.com/aboutus/index.htm","_self");
      //End Behavior

}

on the Text behind the button not on the button.  
So I moved it to there and now it works.

One more thing I don't know if this is just cause it is under construction or what but Your site only looks correct in 1024x768  all other res are shifted off by alot.

that's another question I need an answer to.  I am using some layers in my template in Dreamweaver.  When the layers are lined up in DW they are not lined up in IE.  When I move the layers to fit IE, they don't fit DW.  What should I do?

Also - in the menu you fixed for me....the About Us jumps up high - did you notice that?

thanks!

Yeah that is a problem that I have had to.  But it was only on stuff that was created inside frontpage then edited in DW.  SO I just recreated it in DW and it fixed.  I don't know about your problem, but that was my fix.  And download the fla from above again I changed it to not rise as much.  It was just the placement of it as it tweened.
