What my application actually required is, i have a flash file which displays data which is retrieved from a XML file, and if required i make changes to the data and say submit in flash and data should be updated in the XML files.

for example say i have an XML file with code as

   <a> Apple </a>
   <b> Banana </b>

in flash when retrieved and display it shows like this in a editable textfield.



   Submit (button)

if i made changes like i replaced Applw with Orange and say submit.

in XML file the file should be updated as

   <a> Orange </a>
   <b> Banana </b>

instead of the old data

   <a> Apple </a>
   <b> Banana </b>

can i do it, if possible please help me out.

Note to Mr.henryww, I am Vinod Pindiyan and not vinodb or anyone ok, ha ha ha...

I think you will need some server side scripting like asp, php, cgi, pl, cf, .net, jsp etc.
