Are you getting this error on your hard drive? I have seen this error on
CDROMs when all files are known to exist, and have never figured out why it
happens (I always chalk it up to a bad burn, dust on the CD, or some other
corruption problem).

Another question would be are you absolutely sure you are spelling the frame
name correctly when you access it? There might be a space in the name that
you are missing. I've had that mistake happen sometimes (in fact, I just
had it happen in flash with a misspelled instance name). You are calling
"go to frame FRAMENAME of movie MOVIENAME", right?

Thanks Rebecca.

The problem is very strange now. I do not think it has
anything to do with the file extension. I want to be able to
go to a particular frame in movie2 from movie1 & vice versa.
It works fine with movie1.exe , where it successfully opens
movie2.exe But gives the fol error when I am trying to goto
movie1.exe from movie2.exe.

problem opening movie1
script error "frame not defined"

Lingo is the same in both the movies with the right movie
name & frame name.
Can you help here?
