I have inherited an fla file that in it is calling up a .swf file when it publishes. I want to change the path of the swf file it is calling up, but I cannot find that anywhere in the action scripts. Where else could I look to see the swf that is getting called in?

Generally speaking, you'd look for something like loadMovie or loadMovieNum if it is AS2 project, or Loader/URLRequest if it is AS3 project.  There might be a case where the path of the external SWF is passed into the main SWF via HTML FlashVars as well.

Thanks for the quick reply. Would the place to check for this be in the Library or the Actions window? I've combed through both and am not seeing this one piece anywhere.

Is there another place the swf could be called in?

It's got to be the Actions window of all the possible codes you have if the scripts are stored inside the FLA file.  Go check out the Windows > Movie Explorer as well.  You can use any types of text editors if you see external AS files.
