LOL! I'll send you a copy in a few years, no problem. I was going to 
say, before Kevin answered, that you aren't entirely crazy. It used to 
not work, but somewhere along the way it got fixed and now does.

You can also reduce the above to one line, which works:

   set the text of img "MyImg" of me to the ("state"&tNum) of img "myImg"

That's off the top of my head so if I'm wrong, it's because I'm thinking 
of how it was ten years from now.
