i imagine there's 2 ways you can go about it, but depending on the type of content, stretching the stuff might result in pixelation, but you can try changing the swf size as it's embedded in the file, or not sure how your file is setup you can change the stage size, use the edit multiple frames and try transform everything that way (just back it up before you start fiddling)

It's also possible to edit the embed code in the web page and specify the dimensions of the swf in the HTML. Open the page in a text editor and do a search for ".swf" (without the quotes). You will see the dimensions specified. There may, depending how your page is coded, be multiple instances that need editing - just keep searching your page until you've found all occurrences of ".swf"

I echo blue-genie's warning that depending on what content is in your swf, you may find that the quality suffers. If your content is entirely vector artwork (including text which is vector too) then you should be fine. If you have bitmaps you may find some quality issues.

If you do have bitmaps, here's a 'quick and dirty' trick to try. Open your fla, go to the Library panel, find all of the bitmaps in the panel, right click each one and choose 'properties'. In the bitmap properties dialog (do this for every bitmap) make sure that 'allow smoothing' is checked. Re-publish your swf, view at the enlarged size and evaluate the quality now. It's not a miracle cure, but if your original bitmap images are high quality, and they are not being scaled *too* much, you may find it helpful.

One last thing. If you do manually edit your HTML page to change the displayed size of the swf, republishing the swf may overwrite your html file. You can switch this off by unchecking the '.html' checkbox in the 'File, Publish settings' dialog.
