Q: After creating a preloader as shown in the "Creating a preloader" movie, an error message reading "Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference" appears when the preloader is placed in the timeline. How can this issue be resolved?

A: There is most likely a typo in the code. Unfortunately, Error 1009 is the most vague error in Flash and means the code trying to reference an object that doesn't exist (hence the likeliness of a typo). The best fix is to go through the code one character at a time to make sure everything is correct.
