1) You can import an external text file using the LoadVars
Object if it's in the MIME content type
application/x-www-form-urlencoded. Have a look
- this basically means you need to put a variable name and the
equal sign at the beginning of your text file.
To print in Flash, you need to have a movieclip set up ready
to be printed. It needs to exist somewhere on the stage, though it
can be offscreen if you don't want your users to see it.
when your LoadVars.onLoad event handler is triggered you'll
need to place the data from the external text file into a dynamic
text box in your movieclip to be printed, and then you can use the
PrintJob class to print the movieclip.
2) don't know a way of skipping the print dialog box
