    FAQ: How do I pass variable values from an HTML page to an embedded SWF?

      This TechNote has the details:

      Use FlashVars to pass variables to a SWF file


      Basically, you define the variables and their values within an optional attribute of the HTML <Object> tag called FlashVars. The <Object> tag is the one you use to embed a SWF file in a web page. Then you use ActionScript to access the variables within the SWF file.


      Peter DeHaan also has a nice explanation of how to do this here: http://blogs.adobe.com/pdehaan/2006/07/using_flashvars_with_actionscr.html
