i Thought I posted this question already but it did not appear in the my open list so I am asking again. Sorry if this is a repeat. I have an XML file that is imported to Flash with an xml component. This populates the first of two combo boxes. I want to populate the second combo box dependent on what the user selects in the first combo box. I would be using the same xml file but a different array.
This is a sample of the array
<stores>
  <category>
    <title>Apparel</title>
    <store>
      <name>American Way Thrift Store</name>
      <phone>841-6013</phone>
      <address>3226 W. Magnolia Blvd.</address>
    </store>
    <store>
      <name>Ann of Magnolia</name>
      <phone>567-1472</phone>
      <address>2926 W. Magnolia Blvd.</address>
    </store>
    <store>
      <name>Carly Jean Boutique</name>
      <phone>972-2500</phone>
      <address>3492 W. Magnolia Blvd.</address>
    </store>
...

I have posted the fla and xml file at http://www.alexisjean.com/flash/morePractice8.fla and teams.xml

I have been all over the place on this and would so appreciate some help. Do I need to be using the dataset component? Help!
