control main movie from inside a movie clip - Macromedia Flash Actionscript

this has probably been discussed already but i couldn't find it, heck I may have already asked it. I have a movie clip with a button in it, when the user clicks the button I need to change the frame on the main movie. How do i do it? Thanks in advance...

    Default Re: control main movie from inside a movie clip

    whenever you want to reference the main movie or the main timeline from anywhere, always use the _root function..
