The original question was how to make the movie clip freeze in whatever
frame it had reached, as soon as the user rolls out of the hot spot, and
then resume animating from that frame if the user mouses over the button
again. Your method will not work for this. TellTarget (from the button to a
movie clip that is external to the button) is the appropriate method.

For a second there, I thought you had me :-), But there have certainly
been times when I misread a question, too, so no disrespect to you, either.
in fact, thanks for your diligence.
