OK

Here is what I want to do.


When the Access front end loads I want a flash to come up for about 5 secs then disappear. Then I want to go in to the program.

I also want to be able to put up a flash in some parts of the program. The flash should popup for about 5 secs then diappear then the program continues on its way.

I would like a full screen flash.

Well, using the FLASH.OCX, you should be able to programmatically start & stop the SWF.

Look here for an example in VB:

If you also do Insert;ActiveX Control you will also notice a number of Other properties such as Playing & Movie in the properties window.

Good luck.
