          You essentially need to create a database that you can query.  If you do it within Flash, then you probably want to create an array of objects so that each entry in the array can have several records. 


          Chances are you don't really want to build the database in a Flash file though since it prohibits easy updates tp the items you would search.  You should think about building it up as a separate formal database, such as mySQL where you utilize PHP scripting as the middleman to query the database and report the findings back to the Flash file.
