Hiya Dan,

1. draw line on first frame.(note that if you make line from "paint" option
it will animate quicker, but this is more of a process).

2. make it a symbol

3. add, say, 15 keyframes.

4. add keyframe at frame 15

5. on frame 15 scale line to length you want

6. goto frame one and clik on keyframe, tween and turn off rotate
option.(making sure "scale" option is checked.

7. WALA!
