Hey,
in theory i think seekToNavCuePoint(); should be what you're looking for. but there seems to be some issues surrounding it.

have  a look here about half way down the face.

Thanks, blue-genie... that link led to another and another and another that finally came up with it!!

Here is the code that worked for me (after 4 hours online searching for this!):

var seekto:Number;
next_btn_i.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_UP, fx_forward10);
function fx_forward10(event:MouseEvent):void
{
      seekto = aud01.playheadTime + 10;
      aud01.playheadTime = seekto;
}

The link provided gave me some keywords to try to search online with... due to being stubborn, I kept going from page to page, forum to forum to find something that worked.
