You need web server or network server for this

if you want to do database connectivity using web server then you need to use either ASP or PHP server script language.

If you application is network base then you need to specify full network path into flash.

See this example for your reference

http://www.macromedia.com/support/flash/ts/documents/flash_database.htm

You will get no. of similar examples at the bottom of this webpage.

If you have new flash-mx then database connectivity is in-build.
