This is a little vague.
Where is the html file located? Are you passing it to a page script or
as part of the page's construction - meaning creating the file while
using variables?

Hi,
Thank you for helping out. The file is stored on my computer and my database
does not create the file. Basically, there is a flashmovie in my html file.
This flashmovie has different variables which i would like to give values to
from my access database. I found out how to give variables a value within the
html code. Unfortunately, that is as far as i got.
Any idea?

My only experience with this involves a web server and/or using a url
address. For instance a local file can be specified as file://c:/folder/file.
Usually data is passed between pages by using the POST or GET methods.
The get method allows you to append variables and values at the end of
the address after a question mark like such...www.url.com?
variable=value;var2=value2 - although I've not tried it on using file://
addressing. The page itself would then have to deal with getting the
variables, which past the scope of this group. As far as opening the
file from Access, the Shell() function with correctly built address
string would likely launch the web page.
