child object oddity - Macromedia Director Lingo

I have a parent script and in it I noticed that a SendAllSprites call to a handler in a script attached to a sprite on the stage wasn't getting to the target. I put "put the activeWindow" just before the suspicious line of code and sure enough, because the handler in the object is called from a MIAW, the object thinks it's in the MIAW and the SendAllSprites goes nowhere since the handler doesn't exist in the MIAW. Do I have to specify "tell the stage" anytime I want to send a message to a handler in a stage sprite ...

    Default child object oddity

    I have a parent script and in it I noticed that a SendAllSprites call to a
    handler in a script attached to a sprite on the stage wasn't getting to the
    target. I put "put the activeWindow" just before the suspicious line of
    code and sure enough, because the handler in the object is called from a
    MIAW, the object thinks it's in the MIAW and the SendAllSprites goes nowhere
    since the handler doesn't exist in the MIAW.

    Do I have to specify "tell the stage" anytime I want to send a message to a
    handler in a stage sprite to get around this?

    Thanks Ziggi. Actually it was quite simple, I just did a find and replace
    with gDataList.notes.

    and tell the stage to gDataList.notes.
