Loading Movie Clips into other movie Clips - Macromedia Flash Actionscript

I know I have done this before (or at least something like unto it) but can't find a clear explanation of how to or if it can be done: I have an empty movie clip(1) on the stage. On release of a button, I want to load and play a different movie clip(2) (not SWF file) within the empty movie clip(1). Assuming the empty MC instance is myEmptyClip, and the MC I want to load upon releasing the button is called, loadedClip, how would I get the loadedClip to play in myEmptyClip? Does this make sense?

    Default Loading Movie Clips into other movie Clips

    I know I have done this before (or at least something like unto it) but can't find a clear explanation of how to or if it can be done:

    I have an empty movie clip(1) on the stage. On release of a button, I want to load and play a different movie clip(2) (not SWF file) within the empty movie clip(1). Assuming the empty MC instance is myEmptyClip, and the MC I want to load upon releasing the button is called, loadedClip, how would I get the loadedClip to play in myEmptyClip?

    Does this make sense? It seems really elementary, but I'm having a hard time with the ActionScript.

    Thanks!

    Default Re:Loading Movie Clips into other movie Clips

    give the movieclip loadedClip a Linkage identifier in the Library,
    and use - movieclip.attachMovie(idName, newName, depth)

    btn.onPress = function(){
    myEmptyClip.attachMovie("loadedClip","loadedClip", 99);
    };
