Can anyone help me, I understand the basics of flash but I'm trying to take on something a bit more difficult. Basically I have a MySQL table which is constantly populated with telephone numbers throughout the day, I am trying to create a Flash App which get's the list of telephone numbers from the table and displays them on screen to the user. the app would then check the table and re-display the contents of the table every 5 seconds to reflect any changes in the table.

Can this be achieved and can any one help :-)

Kind Regards,

Tim
