Hi Matthew,

As far as books are concerned, check out Flash 4 Magic:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0735709491/flashlitenet/104-5752681-95852
59

The only book I can think of which is written specifically for intermediate
Flash users and above; an excellent actionscript primer.

You can integrate Flash4 with databases or use Generator. Info about both
can be found at several useful Flash sites on the web. Just to start:

http://www.flashlite.net/
http://www.flashgen.com/html/flashgen.html (Generator)
http://www.were-here.com/ (discussion forums -- good place to ask questions)

In general, I've found web resources to be better than books, but Flash 4
Magic really is great, and given the quality of the authors, I expect the
Flash 4 Bible:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0764533568/104-5752681-9585259

will be very good as well.

Good luck, Matthew.

Cheers!
