Ok, after looking at my flash files I was able to include the variables that were in the text files in the flash file. Problem Solved!
But gettting further in this project a much bigger issue has come up. I now have swfs that use LoadMovieNum to load other swf's into that movie. But when viewing in adobe air the swf's dont' get loaded. I think this is a sandbox issue that I am still trying to get my head around.
How do I load swf's that my main swf relies on when making an html air application?

Is the loading SWF in the application directory (or a subdirectory thereof)?
If so, you are probably running into an AIR bug which prevents proper resolution of relative file paths by SWFs running in an HTML page. There are two workarounds (that I am aware of):
1. Use absolute paths instead of relative paths. (This is the simplest workaround, but if you don't have control of the SWF code, then you might not be able to do it.
2. Arrange for the loading SWFs to be outside the application sandbox. There's a couple of ways you could do this, but for testing, the easiest way is to move them to a directory outside the application directory. This workaround is significantly more complex than the first. Not only do you have to load the SWF differently, if that SWF needs to communicate with other parts of your application, you need to handle the sandbox bridge.
