I am looking for a way to dynamically swap a Flash movie on this page:, without reloading the page.
Right now, I am using the code below, with JavaScript, but this is not working.


<title>Boston Advertising & Online Marketing Agency / Baldwin/Clancy/Rogan</title>

<link href="css/style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

<script src="Scripts/AC_RunActiveContent.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<!-- Loading SWFObject from the Google repository; only works if you have an internet connection! -->

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

<script type="text/javascript">

function loadSWF(url, targetID){

	//Check for existing SWF


		//replace object/element with a new div




	//Embed SWF

	if (swfobject.hasFlashPlayerVersion("7")) {


		var attributes = { data: url, width:"360", height:"250" };

		var params = {};

		var obj = swfobject.createSWF(attributes, params, targetID);




function isObject(targetID){

	var isFound = false;

	var el = document.getElementById(targetID);


	if(el && (el.nodeName === "OBJECT" || el.nodeName === "EMBED")){


		isFound = true;




	return isFound;


function replaceSwfWithEmptyDiv(targetID){

	var el = document.getElementById(targetID);




		var div = document.createElement("div");


		el.parentNode.insertBefore(div, el);


		//Remove the SWF



		//Give the new DIV the old element's ID

		div.setAttribute("id", targetID);






<div id="page">
