Is there a way to grab the name of the .swf file from inside the Flash movie?  Like "this._name" (which I already tried and it did not work) so that I can read in the name of the .swf in order to match it with the appropriate text file?

_url shows the url of the movie

if you just want the filename of the movie, not the path, use something like
_url.substring(_url.lastIndexOf("/") + 1)

Um, yes, actually.

try the following:
trace(_url);
trace(_url.substring(_url.lastIndexOf("/") + 1));
