Hi again Jason (Rome can just wait ;-),

Haven't tried it, but in that case, it might work if you replace "_root"
with "this" (assuming othervar1 and othervar2 and combinedVars are also
in that clip, otherwise you'll have to give them correct path
identifiers, like _root.othervar1, or _root.othermc.othervar1):

for (i=1; i<10; i++) {
this["var"+i] = othervar1 + this["name"+i] + othervar2 + newline;
combinedVars = combinedVars + this["var"+i];
}

Regards,
Helen
