if countss is in the root then you could use this in your lower layers

var r = root;
trace(r.countss) //note that  trace(root.countss) will not work.

Otherwise you could access by doing:
That depends on your version of Actionscript:
1. In Actionscript 1 or 2 you can define global variables using the '_global' prefix like so:

_global.countss = 1;

Open in new window

The you can reference it from any script in any level using

Open in new window

2. In Acrionscript 3 the _global object was removed. You should organize your code and data in classes. But if you absolutely want you could create a class called e.g. GlobalData.as in the root of your class directory (normally the folder containing the fla) and add the variable as a public static variable.

package {
	public class GlobalData {
		public static var countss:Number = 1;

Open in new window

As the variable is static you do not have to create an instance of your class and can just reference if from anywhere with

Open in new window
