The flash site at www.richbourgcpa.com/main.swf is formated for a resolution slightly larger than 1024x768.  Users on 800x600 just get a cropped version of the site.  Hoe do I change the resolution format of the site in Macromedia Flash to 800x600, and/or add a scroll to the site so that users can scroll the page instead of getting a cropped version of the site.

You need to embed the flash in an html page to be able to see the scrollbars, like this:

<html
<head>
<title>Main Page</title>
</head>
<body>
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0" width="800" height="600" id="jpgrotator" align="middle">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="movie" value="http://www.richbourgcpa.com/main.swf" /><param name="menu" value="false" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF" /><embed src="http://www.richbourgcpa.com/main.swf" menu="false" quality="high" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" width="800" height="600" name="main.swf" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />
</object>
</body>
</html>

works great, but how do you get the website to stay in the middle of the browser on reaolutions larger than 800 x 600?

You can wrap it in a table like this:

<head>
<title>Main Page</title>
</head>
<body>
<table width="100%" height="100%"><tr><td>
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0" width="800" height="600" id="jpgrotator" align="middle">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="movie" value="http://www.richbourgcpa.com/main.swf" /><param name="menu" value="false" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF" /><embed src="http://www.richbourgcpa.com/main.swf" menu="false" quality="high" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" width="800" height="600" name="main.swf" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />
</object>
</tr></td></table>

The site is still justified to the left of the browser window on higher resolutions, inside of being centered.  However, you answered my question so I need to award you points.  If you want to provide more help with the centering of the site then that would  be okay too.

Thanks!
