I am using flash 5 with an e-commerce software called "SoftCart" from Mercantec (mercantec.com).
The problem is that "SofCart" creates an shopper Id number (session.ID) that passes to every single page so the shopper can keep navigating without loosing the ID, and this "ID" ends up at the end of every URL.

SoftCart parses on all HTML pages the following tag
%%session.Id%% to the "ID number" that I need to place at the end of every link (URL) on all my flash movies.
Example:
http://www.aceuropa.com/sofcart.exe/store/p-0034212+IDnumber"

How can I do this.

You could load the ID into your flash movie and concatenate it to each URL call:

getURL ("somefile.asp?id=123");

See the tutorial on passing variables around (Intermediate section), but note that GET method isn't secure at all.
