Positioning a imported movie

I'm working with Flash 5. When I go to import a swf file, the result is fine with the exception of the fact that the imported movie is not where it needs to be and I'm needing to move every frame to the correct location.

Is there a way around this?

more clarification:

Come back to scene, Open library windows, drag the new MovieClip symbol instance on stage from the library..

do the following step by step:

Press CTRL+F8, "Create New Symbol" Dialog will appear

enter new MovieClip name and press OK.

Now You are in newly created MovieClip. Import the swf file here....

Come back to scene, and drag the new MovieClip symbol instance on stage..

place it anywhere on stage as you want, you can double click on the movieClip instance on stage to see the all frames.
this movieclip has all the frame.

I hope all would be clear


When you say you're importing a swf, is that is design-time or run-time?  If you're using loadMovie (or similar) set yourMove._x and yourMovie._y to where you want it on the screen.  If you're importing from within the Flash designer, you're probably better off using loadMovie anyway.
