I am trying to use multiple buttons within one movie cilp.  I am using the following script and it works for the first button.  When I click on the second button it goes to the end of the timeline.  

Thanks for any suggestions....
on (release) {
_root.gotoAndStop("frame_label");
}

are all of the buttons supposed to do the same thing, i.e. gotoAnd stop frame_label.
where have you attached that on(release) code? on each of the buttons, or on the movieclip?
why have you got multiple buttons inside a movieclip?

I have multiple button inside the movie clip to display different images on rollover.  The on release is on a button that takes you to the frame with the movie clip.   Each movie clip has multiple images to view.


It is the on release that does not go where I want it to using the gotoAnd stop frame_label.

Thanks for your time...

you should avoid having movieclips in your button  - personal opinion.
rather have movieclips only.

I think he's having buttons in a movieclip and not vice versa. so it should be

on (release) {
    gotoAndStop("frame_label");
}

instead of

on (release) {
    _root.gotoAndStop("frame_label");
}

Sorry i'm being dyslexic.
either there's no logical reason to have a movieclip in a button or a button in a movieclip.
but that's just me.
if the frame labels are in the movieclip, _root shouldnt' work.
you could try
_root.clipname.gotoAndStop("");

i'd suggest confirming your frame label names.
