Hi Sasha! I really can't set it up now to be downloaded, but here is the shoppingcart.txt file: item1=Apple&cost1=10&url1=apple.swf&item2=Grapes&cost2=15&url2=grapes.sw f&item3=Pineapple&cost3=20&url3=pineapple.swf&item4=Coconut&cost4=25&url 4=coconut.swf&item5=Banana&cost5=30&url5=banana.swf&item6=Pears&cost6=35 &url6=pears.swf&item7=Fruit&cost7=50&url7=fruitbunch.swf&count=7 What is confusing to me, is that all of the fruit.fla files are simply one image imported into one keyframe on one layer with no action script. The information in the text file is what appears inside the text fields during the movie. So, the movie is calling the .txt file. Since I sent my first email to evolt, I have managed to stick in my own movie and make it work by replacing the picture in each fruit movie, then going into the text file and changing the "title" (text field variable) and the "cost" (text field variable). NOW, the problem is with the comma and the decimal in say, $50,000.00 (expensive art glass). When there is "punctuation", then the total (text field variable) calculates to a NaN (not a number?) I hope I'm making sense, here. So, I can almost 100% fake it, as long as my expensive art glass is cheap and under $1000 dollars, but not quite. Thanks for all help!

Not that I'd be much help.. I haven't touched Flash in a year ;-). It sounds like a simple loadMovie() somewhere to get your fruit .swfs loaded. I couldn't tell you how the .txt file is created unless I know how it is being used.
