The text layer has to contain executable javascript statements. For example if I have a text file (named "text_test.txt" on my c drive in the temp folder) containing this text:

txt = "one two three four five six seven eight nine ten";

I can add this expression (CS3) to a text layer:

#include '/C/temp/text_test.txt'
txt

and the text layer will display this:

one two three four five six seven eight nine ten

I hope that helps.

Dan
