Many questions that get asked over and over again on this list are easily
answered by TechNotes on Macromedia's site. In fact:

>"How do I loop
>>something x times"

is answered by

How can I loop over some frames a given number of times?
ID: 14023


>"how do I submit variables to ..."

is most likely addressed by

How to create and submit a form in Flash 4
ID: 13919

Rather than act as a 411 operator - the best way to find these (and more) is
on the Flash Support Center page:


This is the springboard to the entire TechNote library. Enter keywords in
the search field. It's that easy.

Many important articles are here; if it's in there, it's more or less
considered common knowledge. Always look there first before anywhere else.
