Yes, that's what I was saying. But thinking about it a bit more, I
think my idea isn't so great. Flash may barf on such a big string for
one variable, and the split method is really slow. Probably your
original way is better, using a text file with
soundpress0=55555&soundpress1=44444&...soundpress899=33333.

Then after you've read in the 900 variables, you could put them into an
array with

aSounds = new Array(900);
for (i=0; i<900; i++) {
aSounds[i] = _root["soundpress"+i];
}

You would still access the array elements as aSounds[thiselement].

Regards,
Helen
