check swfaddress using google.
Please check the "TellTarget Methods" in the following page http://www.adobe.com/support/flash/publishexport/scriptingwithflash/scriptingwithflash_03. html
Now, you can use a parameter in the URL to goto a particular frame in the swf.
Particularly check the methods TGotoFrame, TGotoLablel.
Hope this helps.

This sounds like the right track, but I can't see how to apply it. Are there any examples anywhere?
What I would need is a URL that loads our index.html page, but then also tells another specific .swf movie to load into layer 2. Can't see how to apply any of the telltarget methods this way.
You could use a #location in the URL, where the #location gives the number of the frame.
for e.g. http://something.com/index.html#5
The code for that is in the following location
Specifically something like this
var location = window.location.hash;
//To set the swfs value do
instead of SWFID replace with your value from
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0" width="240" height="320" id="SWFID">
It sounds like you're telling me how to move to a specific frame in my target movie - that's not what I need to do:
I need to be able to direct clients to a URL that loads our index.html page, but then also tells another specific .swf movie to load into layer 2.
Is that clearer?
Yes, absolutely what you wanted is what i have described. Please think about it again .
