I've developed an address book in flash. I can add any address in this address book but when I close the swf I lost all the address added in the address book. I want to save the addresses for future usage. Please tell me how can I do this. I want to keep all the address in an external file say in a database of Ms Access. Please remember I'm not very good in Actionscript and other programming languages so tell me an easy way. Thank you

This depends on whether the program is running locally (projector on your hard drive/cd) or via the web and a browser.

If it's running locally you would have to create and external application (or buy a 3rd party app) which can accpet values from Flash and enter them into a database. (I don't know of any, but others might).

If it's online it would be easier as you can use a PHP/CGI/ASP/etc script to write to an online database. I guess if you want to make it an Acess DB you would have to use ASP, so you're probably better off going to http://www.aspin.com/ and finding out how to enter data into your access DB there. Once you have a working script which accepts variables, we can show you how to pass them from Flash to your script using GetURL or LoadVariablesNUM and POST/GET.

Cheers
