Passing a flash variable from a flash.swf?var=this to itself


I am trying to pass variables as shown below to the same swf file.

Here is the pertinent part of the parameters in the html code that points to the [url=“”]flash file, where in this instance would be the same as the one referenced below.

<embed src=“NS7.swf?colorsheme=green” loop=“false” quality=“high” bgcolor="#ffffff" width=“676” height=“144” name=“NS7” align=“middle” allowScriptAccess=“sameDomain” type=“application/x-shockwave-flash” pluginspage=“” />

What I haven’t figured out is how to bring those variables in so I can do an

if (colorscheme==green) {

How do I call upon those varaibles?

Thanks in advance.
