Default Problems accessing text with loadvariables

Hey everybody,

I'm hoping this one is fairly straightforward, but its got me totally confused to say the least.
I'm using loadvariables to get text data from a remote text file, it all seems to work fine when i do the whole ctrl+enter on my machine to test out. However, when i upload the swf to the server and run the webpage, it doesn't get the data. Anyone experience this before? Any suggestions?

I'm using the line:
loadVariables ("http://www.i-finity.co.uk/mst/newsData.txt",
to call the data, which works fine when running the site locally.

I'm confused.

is the file in your domain? if not then maybe you need to look into:


not sure if thats correct or not... but look thru the flash reference, it should explain it to you.
what the hell was i thinking?
