SWF file doesn't play on web page

I have a SWF file that's based off a XML file. It's basically a banner slide show. I uploaded all the SWF, Content.xml, and images to the root location. When I just click on the main SWF, the movie plays as it should. It's when I embed the file into the web page that I get stuck. It basically just shows the background color scene in the FLA file. It's like it doesn't know where the files are located and if that's the case, I'm not sure where edit it to make the change.

Sorry if I got some of the terminology wrong as I'm pretty new at this.

In the page, just you need to call the swf file with the correct path. You can check by using Code and give the correct Path. When you insert by design it will come whole path, like D:/Flash/answer.swf and so on. you no need to give all the path just answer.swf.
Please insert and let me know..
It will help you .

thanks

It's an internal site, so I can't really post up a link for you to see. But here's a copy of th ecode that's on the main page as well as a screen shot. I can also attach the flash and xml files if needed.

Probably not worth doing.  Can you run Firefox with Firebug and look at the page with Firebug active and the Net panel enabled?  That might return a 404 error for the XML and give us more of clue as to why it is failing...

Sorry for the late reply, but thanks!! That helped a lot. Looks like I had some of the files located in the wrong place. Sometimes it's just the small things that get overlooked.
