Subject: RE: FLASH: random Tell target
From: Patrick Moore

sorry if I'm supposed to be sending this to everyone, but I'm unsure
as to whether I've been offed from the list due to the fact that any mails
to me would have been bouncing up until recently because of a spelling error
in the email setup.

I want to do exactly what this guy below (the quacking guy) wanted to do. I
have done exactly as you have said and it doesn't work

Firstly I had the string lateral thing happening, so I changed this to
Expression (=). However, when the button is clicked, it doesn't show
anything in the output window.

With the string lateral, it says "Target not found: Target=""/xmas" & Random
(3)" Base="_level0"

Could you please give me any help on this. It's a screen saver, and I need
the random function to be internal, not with java etc. THANKYOU THANKYOU
