There are several ways of connecting to a database
with Flash.

Go to HELP ActionScript Reference ...click INDEX and
click...X..scroll down to XML Socket objects and read that.
Also read...method just below socket objects.

Consider this from ActionScript dictionary..

>>Setting up a server to communicate with the XMLSocket object can be challenging. If your application does not require real-time interactivity, use the loadVariables action, or Flash's HTTP-based XML server connectivity (XML.load, XML.sendAndLoad, XML.send), instead of the XMLSocket object.<<

(the rest of this is in ActionScript Dictionary..under..
XML.Socket(object)

You will be able to get some assistance with scripting
in the relevant section of EE once you have decided what
you want to use

I have a couple of articles about Flash MX and databases using ASP.

http://www.asp101.com/articles/flash
http://www.asp101.com/articles/flash2 for multi recordsets.

Good luck,
Dan
