That's what I thought would work but for some reason it doesn't. Are you sure you can do it??

That should work if your description is correct...

Try adding trace() lines to see if you are targetting it correctly...

trace("graphic.animation = " + graphic.animation);
trace("graphic.animation.woman = " + graphic.animation.woman);

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Thanks...it says undefined

Both these work from the base file
graphic.animation = _level0.graphic.animation
graphic.woman = _level0.graphic.woman

woman and animation are on the same level but I want to play the movie woman from inside the animation. maybe you can't do it.
