    When you upload the .swf to your specific website/server, it'll automatically gain a URL - then you can go back in and use that URL.

    If I've understood correctly, escapedf is looking to create a link within his Flash file, not use the Flash animation as a link.

    Right. But he said it was a banner (I imagine an advertisement, but correct me if I'm wrong). I haven't really heard of links inside of banners...at least not in the ads I view.

    Yeah. We don't do a lot of Flash or Actionscript on this forum.

    Good forums might be the Adobe Forums or these.
