An swf can communicate with the html page that holds it using the ExternalInterface class, but I believe that class didn't come into being until Flash 8. If you can edit your file and save it as a Flash 8 or newer file, then you can make use of this class. If you have a newer version of Flash than Flash 6, what you should do is search Google using terms like "AS2 ExternalInterface" and you should find a tutorial or two on putting it to use.
If you don't have a newer version of Flash you can always download a trial version of the latest (assuming your hardware can handle it) and use it for a 30 day trial period.

I did do a search for Flash to CGI and it seems to involve using loadVariables to call a CGI script but as my cgi library uses the domain name of my hosting service and the flash docs say I can only call a CGI script if it shares the same domain as my web page (which is of course different to my hosting service)
Most confused! Maybe I need to hire someone to fix this for me!
Could anyone recomend a good web site to find a Flash developer that would know how to call the CGI Formmail script?
