how to change the height of a /swf file

I am trying to adjust the height of a .swf.  I have tried to change the tag from swf to fla - this is not poss.

I have tried to import it - falsh doesn't like it and it doesn't work.

I have tried to change the height on the code - I cannot do this as it chops off the btm of the images.

Please help,

Thanks in advance,

Bev.

Have you noticed there are two instances where you need to change the size parameters?

width="952" height="406"
width="952" height="300"

These should both be the same.

You may have better results using the scale parameter.

<param name="scale" value="exactfit" />

Hi there,

Thanks for the reply,

But, the only thingthe code is doing is chopping the bottom off the flash, so that doesn't work, Sorry.

yes - i need it to be smaller. The flash is taking up too much of the page.

crooksy88Commented:
So you are wanting to squash the flash file so it keeps the same width but has a smaller height?

BevjonesAuthor Commented:
yes that's right.

Unfortunately the file contains code that prevents the swf from being scaled.
Stage.scaleMode = "noScale";

This is why the scale param didn't work.

Although I was able to decompile the header_v8.swf I'm not able to delete the code and output it again as I don't have the same fonts that were used when the file was created.

You can download a working version from here.

I've used a different embedding technique, called swf object. See the index.html file for how to embed the swf and also note the javascript file that is linked to in the html header.
