[size=2]This tutorial will guide you through the steps of sending information into a Microsoft Access Database using a Flash form and ASP as a server side script. You will also learn some basic and very useful ASP syntax. The example I will be using was created in Flash MX 2004. This will also work for Flash MX, and Flash 5. [/size]


  1. Create the database
  2. Create the Flash form and send our variables to our ASP page
  3. Retreive variables form flash and insert the information into our database[/size]
