Hi Patrick,

Questions about Flash should go to the List so that you can get the
fastest answer,

If you did it exactly right it would have worked. :-)

Since, I don't know what you are trying to do I don't know what would or
would not be expected to be seen in the output window.

"/xmas" & Random (3)
If expression is on (as it should be) the above will create at random
one of these movie clip paths:


Do you have movie clips with these names?
If not why not or maybe I am just guessing wrong about what you are
trying to do.

Next time post your code and explain what you are trying to accomplish
(in plain english). If your FLA file is not too large post it to an FTP
site or zip it and upload it. You can also use FC's FTP anonymous site if need be.
