Real Time Score Update Using Flash With MS Access

HI ALl Expert,

Now i was doing a project for Internet.
What my page will do is, update the score in my score page when user view the score and without refresh the page.

SO how i can let the flash communcation with my .MDB to get the latest score for each game. then display it on flash movie without refresh the page.?

In my flash movie i will display top 10 player score.
Then when back end enter new player and score, if the score is within the top 10
then then flash movie will update the score and without refresh the page

Thanks
Max

Hi MaxTo,

You'll need to have server-side programming. I think ColdFusion will be fine for this.

Inside Flash movie.
This will allow to execute your code every 5 seconds. And you'll need to write this code that will request needed variable from ASP. The artilce I mentioned will help you.
