Every action in Flash happens on a timeline.
If you want an action to occur you must move along the main timeline or
have the action run on an independent timeline in a Movie Clip or in
another Movie loaded by Load Movie. A single button can trigger multiple
Actions with a Goto and/or various Tell Targets to Movie Clips or other
Movies loaded by Load Movie. Or that button can trigger a series of
actions. But understanding that nothing happens unless you are moving
along or jumping to a new point in one of the timelines is critical to
understanding how things can happen in Flash.

Though a Button Instance can only actually have one set of actions
assigned to it you can replace the button with another Instance of the
button in the same place on the stage and make it look like the same
