AS3: going to specific frame label

i tried to specify a mouse click button for specific frame label.
the idea is:
when click a button for example 2, the play head plays from 31 to 45.
from there is jumps to the stored string witch is the name of the label

i get this error when i compile:
ArgumentError: Error #2109: Frame label root1 not found in scene Scene 1.
      at flash.display::MovieClip/gotoAndPlay()
      at main_fla::MainTimeline/frame45()
it says, there is no labels, but the label is there.

any help, thanks

// this code on frame 30
var nextSection:String = "";
section1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, navigate, false, 0, true);
section2.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, navigate, false, 0, true);
section3.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, navigate, false, 0, true);
function navigate(evt:MouseEvent):void {
	addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, frameSection, false, 0, true);
function frameSection(evt:Event):void {
	if (currentFrame == 45) {
		nextSection =;
//this code on frame 45

Open in new window
