Hi there,

I have a news page in asp collecting data off access database. Obviously you have the topic, date and content for each item with a repeat. How do I embed a flash file to collect this data and project it into flash rather than html?

Thanks in advance

Stephen

<td valign="top"><br>
 <%
While ((Repeat1__numRows <> 0) AND (NOT Frontpage.EOF))
%>
            <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
              <tr>
                <td background="images/background.gif"><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><strong><font color="#00008F">&nbsp;<img height=8 alt=""
                  src="images/arrow.gif"
                  width=5 align=absMiddle border=0>&nbsp;</font></strong></font><strong><a href="news.asp?<%=(Frontpage.Fields.Item("Frontpage_ID").Value)%>" class="MenuItem"><%=(Frontpage.Fields.Item("Title").Value)%></a></strong><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><strong><br>
                  </strong> <font size="1">&nbsp;Posted on <%=(Frontpage.Fields.Item("Entrydate").Value)%><br>
                  </font></font></td>
              </tr>
              <tr>
                <td><br>
                  <%Dim Leftimage
   Leftimage = Frontpage.Fields.Item("Imageleft").Value
   If Leftimage <>"" THEN%> <img src="graphics/<%=Leftimage%>" align="left" border="0">
                  <%ELSE%> <%End If%> <%Dim Rightimage
   Rightimage = Frontpage.Fields.Item("Imageright").Value
   If Rightimage <>"" THEN%> <img src="graphics/<%=Rightimage%>" align="right" border="0">
                  <%ELSE%> <%End If%> <font color="#333333" size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><%=(Frontpage.Fields.Item("Contents").Value)%></font></td>
              </tr>
            </table><br>
            <br>
            <%
  Repeat1__index=Repeat1__index+1

You will still need an asp file in between your db and the flash file as flash will not be able to access your db directly. Have a look at these PAQ's that discuss theis process:
