I'm brand new to web design and I can't seem to figure out how to move the swf text. In Dreamweaver 8. I'm just trying to center it some more to the right. Is it possible or did I mess up the whole site and make it not possible?

Unless I'm missing something, DW cannot be used to edit SWF files. You need to re-render the FLA project inside Flash Pro or whatever Flash authoring app you used to create this in the first place.
As an FYI: Flash is a dead web technology that is not supported by iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android, etc... The list of non-flash supporting web devices continues to grow. Don't use Flash unless you want to alienate your site visitors.
Use good old HTML, CSS and jQuery. You'll reach a whole lot more people that way.
Wow I did not not know that about Flash! Thank You Nancy!
I used a program called swf text to create that but what does that have to do with the position on the page? I'm going take your advise, but am still curious as to how to move it over to the right? I'm not editing the file itself, just trying to move it over a little.
But keep in mind not all mobile/ handheld devices support it.
They aren't the only ones that can't see 'into' Flash files - the list includes search engine spiders which is why nobody who understands these things would ever make a navigation element in Flash.
Interesting re Flash-- Are you saying not to use flv videos on your website? What would be a beter video format? DW CS6 makes it real easy to insert an flv file (Insert/Media/FLV... ) but , of course, I don't want alienate anyone!
