This is so aggravating. I'm getting the following error message everytime I
test my movie:

**Error** Symbol=itemHolder_mc, layer=layer6, frame=1:Line 1: Statement must
appear within on/onClipEvent handler
z

Total ActionScript Errors: 1 Reported Errors: 1

Ok, so I go to itemHolder_mc, go to layer 6 and click on frame 1...guess what?
There isn't any actionscript on frame 1! There's no little "a" to denote that
there is script on the frame. So what's the deal? Is it looking for a mystery
"z"??? I really don't want this to start messing with my movie, my deadline is
in 3 days!

inside your itemHolder_mc movie clip, there's another movie clip on layer 6, frame 1, which you've accidentally attached the code 'z' to...
