Hi there, I'm trying to do following tutorial

but i keep getting following errors:
**Error** Symbol=uptrigger, layer=Layer 1, frame=2:Line 1: Unexpected '/' encountered
     /text:scroll = Number(/text:scroll)-1;

**Error** Symbol=downtrigger, layer=Layer 1, frame=2:Line 1: Unexpected '/' encountered
     /text:scroll = Number(/text:scroll)+1;

I downloaded the file from the tutorial and it seems to be absolutly the same... but it works

any ideas?

    that is a very old tutorial. The commands you are looking at have been replaced by newere commands. Go to your publish settings and change them to ActionScript 1, instead of Actionscript 2. That should help.
