Problem understanding actions and shape keys (Solved)

Hi, I was trying to learn to use action editor and is confused. My idea is to create a set of shape keys for the mesh, and create set of actions where each action contains some of these shape keys with IPO specified at certain key frames. Now I want to use NLA to compose these actions in a particular sequence.
But now my problem is that, I create actions and each action contains all the shape keys I created. When I modify IPO for a shape key in one action it effects all other actions. How can I make them independent? Am I clear enough to communicate what I want or am I confusing?

You need a driven Ipo Key, the best is probably to use armature driven Ipos.

Hope that helps.
