Loading a movie in existing moviclips

Another one from me:

I've got a flash page in witch I included a movieclip and gave the instance the name Season Now in a frame I want to check for the date and when month==12 (December) I want the movieclip winter.swf to be loaded into the movieclip Season

I Tried this:

loadMovie ("winter.swf", "Season");
and I tried it withoud the " around Season, but it just wont work. How can I get this to work???

    I know that the response to this may be late and you may have learned how to make this work but I will respond assuming that you have not. When using loadMovie, make sure that the target movie clip is named completely. for instance, change your loadMovie statement to this....

    loadMovie("winter.swf", _level0.Season);

    keep in mind, that this would be different if Season was embedded in another movie clip for example... "Continent"

    loadMovie would now look something like this....

    loadMovie("winter.swf", _level0.Continent.Season);

    does this make sense? If not, I am always willing to exchange information concerning Actionscript. Just e-mail me at [email protected] or at home at [email protected]
