I built my site mostly in Flash and then put the swf. into a Dreamweaver file.  The problem I am having is that when I preview my site the site looks fine and the swf comes up perfectly. BUT, I uploaded my site last night and the swf. does not show...just the few words I have on my Dreamweaver file show.  I am thinking that somehow the server is not seeing my swf. file....how on earth do I fix this?
My site is up:  www.junemichelillustration.com    there should be a big swf. movie above the little bit of text that you see.

thanks...very desperate here

Did you upload the junemichelillustration.swf to the *same* folder as the /index.html-file?

ok...not too familiar with Dreamweaver but let me try to see if I understand this solution...will look at my files....I have never had this problem before.  Usually Dreamweaver asks me if I want to save the swf. in the root folder and it has not been asking me to do that with this file. hmmm
