Resize Header based on Resolution

I am trying to put in a flash header for our website.  I have created the flash and it works great.  Here is the problem.  My site is set up in a table format.  There are 4 rows and 5 columns.  Here is my first row
Column 1 is empty
Column 2 is our company logo
Column 3 - Column 5 is where I want the flash to go.

The problem is that depending on the resolution of the screen the user is using my flash movie either fits perfectly (middle(1024) res), is too short (high res) or is getting cut off (low res).  Is there anyway to stretch or shrink the .swf when I put it there?  I'm not worried about the hieght just the width.  Thanks for the help.

That doesn't seem to work.  When I made the width="100%" the swf actually showed up smaller than when I had no width declared.

Sorry I did it wrong.  It worked, but I had text on the very left side and when the movie stretched out, it moved my text to the right.  Is there anyway to make that text stay on the left border no matter what?

Works great.  I just needed to add the following action script:

Stage.align = "L";
Stage.scaleMode = "noScale";

Once I added that it worked fine.  Thanks again!
