"Tell Target" is CS4

I built an app in Flash a while ago where a user could click on a button and the text would scroll down. It wasn't a "scroller," it was just an arrow, either up or down, where the script was telling another movie clip to advance the timeline forward or backward.

I know that's an archaic approach, but I have no idea to start with CS4. Any suggestions?

I don't know what version of ActionScript you are using, but use dot notation to replace the tellTarget...

CyanBlue
tellTarget ("someMC")
{
     gotoAndPlay("someWhere");
}
 
should be...
 
someMC.gotoAndPlay("someWhere");
