    flash banner ads

    trying to make a banner ad in flash that affiliates can use on their site. Problem is that the banner ad requires a unique url for each affiliate so we can track results.

    the url might look like this: http://www.mysite.com/affiliate.cfm?...=34567&anp=123

    where 34567 is the affiliate code. Is there a way that unique number could be specified somehow in the html for the flash plug-in and change the url for the banner accordingly.

    Did that make sense.

    An affiliate tracking system is already in place. I just need pass a parameter to flash and have it create the last part of the url that the user goes to when they click on the banner.

    No server side code is required.
