I tried that and it did work, however I am having trouble associating that
set of variables with the set from another object to determine collision.

The second object is also a motion clip which moves across the screen via
ActionScript.

So, basically I can get the coordinates for both objects, I just don't know
how to make them
talk to each other.

Thanks,

If the object is a movie clip, and the animation including its
motion path is also a movie clip, you can get the x and y
position of the object by targeting the object MC within the
motion MC.

It would be something like
GetProperty(/motion_mc/object_mc/,_x)
or whatever its Flash 5 equivalent is...
