Frustrated Flash Beginner. gotoAndPlay doesn't work.

I have a Flash movie.  There is about 2 seconds of audio I want to eliminate.  I think the easies way is to just skip over it using gotoAndPlay.  Perhaps skipping over isn't the easiest.  Expert recommendation requested.

I want to skip the region A--> B soI added a key frame at 'A'  'gotoAndPlay(<frame#B>);

PROBLEM IS IT DOESN'T EXECUTE!!!  It just plays right on through the audio i want to skip.  As if it didn't even recognize I had any code at Point A.  

How do I make gotoAndPlay skip the frames I want?

Yes, that looks right!

And I guess the code you use is something like:

// On the keyframe where you want the skip to start
gotoAndPlay("skipDestination");

?

You have to set the audio type to "Stream" to make that work.

Stream syncronizes the timeline and the audio, so that if you skip a frame with "stream", you'll also skip a frame of the sound.

You'll find the option by clicking on the timeline with the sound (just anywhere), and in the Properties Panel you will see an option called:

Sync

I guess it's at either 'Event' or 'Start' now, but set it to 'Stream', and the code should work perfectly :)

Am I doing this right?  I set the audio to stream and it still plays right through the part I want to skip.

why not just use stop all sounds on the appropriate frame?

stopAllSounds()
gotoAndStop("b"); // frame labeled "b"
