Hi, Experts
I have a script that import images from external folder. The script also create a menu on top of each image. I would like to be able to move these images and menus up and down by using scrolling function. However, it can only scroll the last image only. I think it is kind hard to explain, does anyone have idea how to make all images to scroll ? Thanks

var _loc1 = this;
//
function loadMe() {
      myX = 62;
      myY = 125;
      gap = 105;
      gap2 = 0.66;
      max = 4;
      counter = 0;
      for (n=1; n<howMany; n++) {
            mc = _loc1.createEmptyMovieClip("myTarget"+n, 20+n);
            trace("Project list n = "+n);
            picture = "netblue/"+projects[n]+".jpg";
            mc.loadMovie(picture);
            if (counter>max) {
                  counter = 0;
                  myY = myY+gap;
            }
            // end if                                                      
            mc._x = myX+gap*counter;
            mc._y = myY*gap2;
            trace("counter:"+counter);
            ++counter;
      }
      // end of for
      if (howMany>20) {
            trace("Too many!!");
            //for (i=20; i>20; i++) {
            trace("Trace n = "+n);
            //}
      }
}
// End of the function
function buildMenu() {
      myX = 62;
      myY = 125;
      gap = 105;
      gap2 = 0.66;
      max = 4;
      counter = 0;
      for (i=1; i<howMany; i++) {
            mc = _loc1.attachMovie("button", "button"+i, 50+i);
            trace("Menu list --   "+i);
            mc.i = i;
            _loc1.myName = i;
            _loc1.myName = _loc1.projects[i];
            mc.person.text = _loc1.myName;

            }
            // end if                                                      
            mc._x = myX+gap*counter;
            mc._y = myY*gap2;
            trace("counter:"+counter);
            ++counter;
      }
      // end of for
}

_loc1.upStatus = 0;
//
var myListener = new Object();
myListener.onLoadInit = function(target_mc) {
      this.imageborder = 9;
      target_mc._x = -(target_mc._width/2);
      target_mc._y = -(target_mc._height/2);
      trace("Picture width  "+target_mc._width);
      //Load white BG
      _loc1.attachMovie("whiteOutBG", "whiteOutBG", 9998);
      _loc1.whiteOutBG._width = target_mc._width+2*this.imageborder;
      _loc1.whiteOutBG._height = target_mc._height+2*this.imageborder;
      _loc1.whiteOutBG._x = 322;
      _loc1.whiteOutBG._y = 222;

//Scroller part --- need fix

// End of the function
#include "netblue/netblueList.as"
var scrolling = 0;
var howMany = projects.length;
var n = 1;

Replace this with your current code and try. Should work.

var _loc1 = this;
//
function loadMe() {
      myX = 62;
      myY = 125;
      gap = 105;
      gap2 = 0.66;
      max = 4;
      counter = 0;
      var ScrollMovie:MovieClip = _loc1.createEmptyMovieClip("ScrollMovie",1);
      for (n=1; n<howMany; n++) {
            mc = ScrollMovie.createEmptyMovieClip("myTarget"+n, 20+n);
            picture = "netblue/"+projects[n]+".jpg";
            eval("ScrollMovie.myTarget"+n).loadMovie(picture);
            if (counter>max) {
                  counter = 0;
                  myY = myY+gap;
            }
            // end if                                                      
            mc._x = myX+gap*counter;
            mc._y = myY*gap2;
      ++counter;
      }
}
// End of the function
function buildMenu() {
      myX = 62;
      myY = 125;
      gap = 105;
      gap2 = 0.66;
      max = 4;
