          Yes, use ExternalInterface.

            Thanks allot for your reply... My problem is that I can not in anyway change the HTML. These limitations are because I'm working on an integration between Oracle BI Publisher and Flex. All I can do is have the swf file embedded in the HTML page which contains this hidden input textbox. I can not add my own javascript to the HTML so I wish to directly write to the textbox. Is that possible?

              googoo123456,
              you can put the JavaScript directly into the Flex call, something like
              ExternalInterface.call(my_javascript_string);

              However in the situation you describe then you will have to get everything in there and correctly formatted etc - ie the DOM call to get the textbox via its name and/or ID value as well as the actual set value code.
