Hey I was wondering if it would be possible to execute an ASP page in Flash?  Also would it be possible to insert values into a Microsoft Access 97 database from Flash?

I'm just a newbie at this right now and I'm trying to learn :-).

Okay I discovered how to do it.  I am such a begginer I don't know how to print or display values.  How do you do this?  IE JavaScript -- document.write('') -- Active Server Pages -- response.write ""

Frankly, you don't do anything like that. ASP runs on the SERVER, not in Flash. You can't dynamically write them. Javascript from Flash is CLIENT side, and will NOT create ASP.

However, you certainly can send form input from Flash to an ASP page. But that's not even remotely generating ASP from Flash.

If you want to write to a database, you're going to have to do it on the server, and NOT from within Flash. The values can come from Flash, but NOT the processing code. You'll have to write that using a regular code editor.

I am creating a CD housing a Flash presentation.  I would like to include a small catalog search to show a few feature items.  Can this be done using an access database?  I need a way to work with an ASP page but am new to this!!!!!!!
