See if this can work for you.  This assumes you have a specific page to show Flash files.

<%
  'Step 1: Read in the Flash ID from the querystring
  Dim FlashID
  FlashID = Request.QueryString("FlashID")
 
   'Step 2: Retrieve the flash file from the database
  Dim objConn, objRS, strSQL
  strSQL = "SELECT Flash FROM Table WHERE FlashID = " & SomeNumber
 
  Set objConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
  objConn.Open "DSN=YourDatabase"
 
  Set objRS = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
  objRS.Open strSQL, objConn
 
    'Step 3: Set the ContentType to image/jpeg
  Response.ContentType = "application/x-shockwave-flash"
   
  'Step 4: Use Response.BinaryWrite to output the image
  Response.BinaryWrite objRS("Flash")
   
  'Clean up...
  objRS.Close
  Set objRS = Nothing
 
  objConn.Close
  Set objConn = Nothing
%>

I've never stored anything in a database like that so I don't know how well it works.  Gook luck!

Modification to Step 2:

  'Step 2: Retrieve the flash file from the database
  Dim objConn, objRS, strSQL
  strSQL = "SELECT Flash FROM Table WHERE FlashID = " & FlashID
