There are probably a few ways you could approach this. One that comes to mind is that you could link to a php file that uses the url variables (the string info you want to pass) and dynamically creates the web page code for the Flash, including the parameters as FlashVars in the embedding code.
Thanks Ned. Actually what I'm trying to do is embed the recipient's name in the hyperlink that the client will be sending out in an email. If I can also embed the sender's name that would be a bonus! Thanks again.

Yes, that is what I read from your first posting. If you look at the link I provided in my last reply you will see that it embeds some data that follows the question mark. That is where you will embed the data you want for the url. If you are not familiar with hiow that is done, the format is basically....
So in your case you'd be using the names where I show name1 and name2, etc... (data1, etc are arbitrary variable names)
What you need is something waiting at the url that extracts that information and my first posting describes a couple of ideas for that. A PHP program is geared for extracting those variables almost directly.
One thing you could also consider is not using the actual names in the url, but instead using some codenames that you use to look up the real names in a separate data file, but that is just an enhancement on the task you need to take care of.
