Hi David.

Curtis Bay and I just worked on this same problem. Can't store variables
but you can make a clip that 1) on rollover goes to frame "N," on rollout
goes to "next frame," where an action sends it back to "previous frame."
Variations of this will let you go to various places in the movie clip and
on rollout jump back to whatever the previous frame is. Using this
relative frame command (rather than labels) allows the button to have the
same action (go to next, go to previous) but the clip "remembers" where it
was. If you need more specificity, please describe your project in more
