This element points the contents of an external ASX file. The WMP control processes the ENTRY elements of the referenced ASX file as if they were included in the primary ASX file at the position of the ENTRYREF element. However, it skips any ENTRY elements in the referenced ASX file that have the SKIPIFREF attribute set to YES.

The WMP control ignores any ENTRYREF elements in the referenced ASX file. Thus, ASX files can only be nested one level deep. The WMP control also ignores the ASX element in the referenced file along with its attributes.
