ActionScript Newbie

I am trying to move a movie clip
from:centre of the stage at 20% scale and alpha=0
to: the top of the stage at 100%scale and alpha = 100

simple enough but my actionscript isn't doing what I want.

My question is: How do I stop the clip once it has reached the top of the stage and has reached 100% scale size?

Here is my script:
onClipEvent (load){
      scaleAmt = 20;
      scaleAmt <=100;
      this._alpha = 0
      x = 69; //starting point x
      y = 206;//starting point y
onClipEvent (enterFrame){
      scaleAmt ++;
      this._alpha +=20;
      this._x = 69; // x value must not change as clip must move upwards in a straight line
      this._y -= 5;
      this._xscale = scaleAmt;
      this._yscale = scaleAmt;

onClipEvent (enterFrame){
scaleAmt ++;
this._xscale = scaleAmt;
     this._yscale = scaleAmt;
if(this._alpha<100){ this._alpha +=20;}
     this._x = 69; // x value must not change as clip must move upwards in a straight line
if(this._y>0){     this._y -= 5;}
