what exactly are you trying to achieve?
use a for loop to loop through your item arrays convert each item to a String and use the indexOf for the String.

No...  indexOf() is not supported in AS2...  But you can create your own if you really want to...  Of course this code won't cover all the possibility, but you could expand from this...

CyanBlue
Array.prototype.indexOf = function (element)
{
	var _len:Number = this.length;
	for (var i:Number = 0 ; i < _len ; i++)
	{
		if (this[i] == element)
		{
			return i;
		}
	}
	
	return -1;
}
 
var arr1:Array = new Array(12, 34, 56, 78, 90);
trace(arr1.indexOf(34));     // 1
 
var arr2:Array = new Array("Action", "Script", "Hello", "World");
trace(arr2.indexOf("Hello"));     // 2
trace(arr2.indexOf("world"));     // -1
