standalone image problem

After thirty odd years of programing in HyperCard/MetaCard/Revolution/LiveCode it's nice to feel like a newbe again, it means I'm still learning. Thanks for all the suggestions, I finally realized that I had forgotten to check the "copy referenced files" box so the media files , the <filenames> were not placed in the app bundle.
The media-images, audio files and a video are all shown. But I still have a problem. I have a number of text files which are loaded successively in a field on a card. None of them load in the standalone. They do not get loaded into the bundle since they are not filenames.
This script work fine on the desktop:
on putinfo
   global tt,pname,iiname,az,ttt,z,cdname1,zz
  put  param (1)  into az
  put param (2) into tt
  put tt&az into ttt
  put iiname &ttt into z
    put "file:"& z  into zz
  put URL zz into field "info" on cd tt
end putinfo

on putHinfo
  global iiname,az,tt,aaz,ttt,zz
  put  param(1)  into az
  put param(2) into tt
  put az into ttt
  put iiname & ttt into aaz
   put "file:"&aaz  into zz
  put URL zz into field "habinfo" on cd tt
 end putHinfo
az & tt are passed from opencard or button code. Every thing else load so it seems to be finding all the files. That doesn't seem to be the problem. Any other ideas? How do I get the text files in the bundle?

I have Snow Leopard installed.The folder structure is ./Resources/map_animation.gif for a typical file I have included the open stack code and the opencard code for one of the cards. I also will include(attached) screen capture of the folders location . As I said the stack works, ie. clik on the field or button and it will go to the next cd, all the text files are read and shown but the images (gif & jpeg), audio, and one video clip do not show. Since it is showing the files it looks like it is finding the files in the folder but not showing them.
