code for playing movieclips

OK, here is the problem: I have done a small movieclip called "clip_a10". After I have created a new flash document. In the library of this document I have included the clip_a10 movieclip. I want to "insert" the clip_a10 movieclip into the interface, but instead of dragging and dropping it into this interface i want to do it by code, because of programming issues. i have tried to use loadMovie(), playMovie() and other methods but for some reason none of these works. can someone give me an help on this?
many many thanks

loadMovie() is to load external flash movie files (swf files).
You try attcheMoive command.

 this.attachMovie(_backgroundMCName, "background_mc", -1,{_x:0, _y:0,_xscale:0,_yscale:0});

you can use "attachMovie"

1. To use attachMovie, first of all, right click in library and click "Linkage..."

2. Now check the "Export for Actionscript" checkbox, you will notice as you click, identifier textbox become enable and "clip_a10" have been filled automatically.

3. click Ok.

4. now you are ready to use this movieClip as attachMovie.

5. Write the following code to the first frame.
_root.attachMovie("clip_a10","mc", _root.getNextHighestDepth());

6. compile to test it.

more details on "attachMovie" is here
