I went through that artical and have applied everything he suggested and still cant get ie to send a variable back. Weird thing is it works in ie on another project I have done.
I noticed I get one error in IE , however it says it is in line one on Char 81. That line is the xhtml transitional declaration. Would that have anything to do with it?
There error says: Object doesn't support this property or method.

One useful tool is the IE Developer toolbar which gives you the ability to inspect the current state of the DOM (not quite as powerful as firebug in firefox, but still quite useful). I had a situation just recently where the OBJECT tag's id attribute was undefined and it was causing problems similar to what you describe.
I checked the Tag id's and all are defined. This is the weirdest thing because I used this method on another site and it works fine in IE but on this site it doesn't. In Addition there is no noticable difference in the html at all.

Have you considered using SWFObject instead? I personally prefer it and its even (apparently) used by Adobe on some of their own sites.
I also remember reading about a dreamweaver extension a couple of weeks back that someone had made for SWFObject, but I haven't tried it:
