Flash's Send Variable option sends all the variables that exist on the
targeted timeline as standard variable/value pairs which if sent as POST
can then be extracted with a request.form command on the asp page.

The following ASOP code sets the value of aspVar equal to the variable
FlashVar received from Flash.

aspVar = Request.Form("FlashVar")

Coming Soon Flash 4 Web Animation F/X and Design
