Put a SWF file on a dynamically generated pages using Dreamweaver and PHP

I can successfully upload a SWF movie to a folder on my server and its filename to a database with a CMS form I've created in Dreamweaver using PHP.
What I need to do is have the SWF movies I've uploaded to the server appear on pages that are generated dynamically. I know how to do this with jpgs: ie, by applying a source attribute to the proper record the bindings panel and then binding that to the dynamic image area on the page.
So how do I do the same thing with a SWF file?

Hi trptdblc,

The easiest way to do it is to create a new blank page and drag and drop a flash file into it.  DW will auto-generate the code for embedding.  Switch to code view to see all of the code (and includes) needed and find the references to the swf file name.  Copy/paste the code into the dynamic page (fix paths if needed) and replace the static filename with whatever dynamic call holds the same information.

You will note that the code does not use a full file name (file.swf) in all cases.  Instead, it uses just "file"
