Grabbing a value from a Recordset and making it a link in a Flash button

I've got button that I've made in Flash (Flash 8). For the "action," I want it to be get URL() and the URL needs to be the web address that's coming from a recordset using ASP.

So if at the top of my page I've got...

set DBConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
DBConn.Open session("dbConn_ConnectionString")
set rsArtist= Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
sql4 = "select * from Resources where Volume = " & Request.QueryString("Volume") & " AND SessionGroup='" & Request.QueryString("SessionGroup") & "'"
rsArtist.open sql4,dbconn,3,3

SongURL= RSArtist("SongURL")

How do I get that "SongURL" to be the URL in the getURL command of my button in Flash?

Thanks!

As long as you're using Flash 6 or later, which I assume you are, you can use FlashVars.  Here's a tutorial about them: http://www.permadi.com/tutorial/flashVars/

So to use them w/ ASP, you'd have, for example,
<PARAM NAME=FlashVars VALUE="URL=<%=SongURL%>">

Now unfortunately I don't know how exactly you dig that out in Flash - I haven't done any ActionScripting in quite a while.  I'm sure you could find something by googling, but to get the ASP in there just use <%=SongURL%> where ever you want that songurl variable to be embedded.

Let me know if you have questions.
