I've been tasked with changing the urls assigned to the buttons in a .fla file. I can see the onclick get url commands in movie explorer but cannot for the life of me locate the actions that have been assigned to the buttons within the .fla within any layers or the timeline.

I need to change them to the following but how?
Heart and Bird buttons -
Heart ------ qualities_enter.html
Bird -------- a_little_bird.html

The 8 Children's face buttons -
Chi --------- story_chi.html
Ella -------- story_ella.html
Hadiya --- story_hadiya.html
Nakos ---- story_nakos.html
Narwee -- story_narwee.html
Nisis ------ story_nisis.html
Pacha ---- story_pacha.html
Simoon -- story_simoon.html

I'm at a loss for where the commands are located and I've been going round in circles having looked at all the layers.
Thanks for any help in advance!

double click on the pictures of the kids, they've been grouped,

double click again until you get to each individual button.
then look in the actions panel
it should say "ACTIONS  - BUTTON" on the tab.

you'll find all the getURL code there for each button.

Thanks for the answer. Apologies I took so long to close. As we needed an answer really quickly we ended up coding in html5 and just dumped Flash altogether, this is the first time I've returned to the site since. I did however test it and can confirm the solution was perfect. Cheers!
