Download SQLite db without dialog box.

Hello,

I have an air app which I would like to download a couple sqlite databases in the background. I was using this code (which produces a dialog box), and it worked just fine:

        private function downloadFile(e:MouseEvent)
        {                    
             var downloadURL:URLRequest;
            downloadURL = new URLRequest();
            downloadURL.url = "http://example.com/dumped.db";
            file = File.documentsDirectory;
          file.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, completeHandler);
            file.download(downloadURL, "downloaded.db");
        }
            private function completeHandler(e:Event):void
            {
                  log.text = "Download Complete";
                  database = File.documentsDirectory.resolvePath("downloaded.db");
                  openDB();
            }
        private function openDB():void
        {
            log.text = "Opening DB";
            connection.addEventListener(SQLEvent.OPEN, openSuccess);
            connection.addEventListener(SQLErrorEvent.ERROR, openFailure);
            connection.openAsync(database);
        }
               private function openSuccess(e:SQLEvent):void
            {
                  tf.text = "Open Success";
                  query.sqlConnection = connection;
                  query.addEventListener(SQLEvent.RESULT, onQResult);
                  query.addEventListener(SQLErrorEvent.ERROR, onError);
                  query.text = "SELECT latitude, longitude from latLong";
                  query.execute();
            
            }

Now, I am trying to do the file transfer with URLLoader, but I get SQLError: 'Error #3115: SQL Error.', details:'no such table: 'latLong'', operation:'execute', detailID:'2013' . I have verified that the db I am trying to download is intact and should open fine, so I am assuming that the URLLoader is messing it up somehow. I have tried to take the downloaded info and make it into a Database and File, both give the error above. Any Ideas how to get this db down in the background, while still being recognizable?

Thanks,

Solved --- For those who may be interested, I needed to set the URLLoaderDataFormat to BINARY and then do this:

//This is triggered by the loader's complete Event:

            private function parseDB(e:Event):void
            {
                        //db = previously declared as File
                  db = File.documentsDirectory.resolvePath("myDB.db");
                  fs = new FileStream();
                  fs.open(db, FileMode.WRITE);
                  fs.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, openDB);
                  fs.writeBytes(e.target.data);
                  fs.close();
                  openDB();
                  trace("ParseDBCompleted with no errors");

            }
