flash supports java and php and interaction with databases in mySQL etc.
i have a book called Flash MX Unleashed. It’s a great resource and I would recommend it to anyone. This book has the information in it. i started to copy it down but aside from the fact that it’s really long, i think that’s copyright infringement. so i’ll just recommend you go to barnes and nobles or borders or some bookstore and find Flash MX Unleashed written by Matthey Pizzi and published by SAMS (no … not the grocery store). Anyway, i’d be of more help but I don’t have time to read through the tutorial at the moment so that I might explain it better.
but with what i can see in the book you can display database fields in a table and update them dynamically. also you can have them displayed as part of a MCsymbol so then you could put that into a scroller window. i think that will solve your problem.
if you find or buy the book … the tutorial to which i am referring is on page 749 (yes its a huge book)
hope this helps
