Need some pointers regarding a small project

Hey everyone,

I’ve got a small project to tackle at work and I don’t really know where to begin. I never ever touch Flash but this has become my responsibility so so be it.

Basically I have to create a flash form that writes to a CSV file, thanks you for filling it out (for 3 or 5 seconds, yet to be determined) then brings back the clear form. Also if no mouse movement or keys are being hit it needs to play a little slide show after a couple minutes.

I basically don’t know where to start with any of this. I’m not a complete idiot, I have a basic idea for how things work, can code in other languages, just don’t have any experience with AS3 or Flash CS3.

Any kind of pointers or starting points would be super helpful, on a pretty tight deadline so I’m kind of being a jerk and asking while I’m still doing research.
