    That seems to work, but only if the text file resides in the same directory,
    as soon as I point it to an URL containing the same text file, it fails to
    load and I get back 'undefined'.

    Does anyone know how to get this to load from a remote URL?

    Loading variables from a remote file into Flash
    Flash can call a remote file by using a command in the Action tab called
    'Load/Unload Movie'. Select its 'Load Variables into location' option and
    give the URL of your file in the URL box provided. The command will now look
    like:

    Load Variables ("your_file_URL.asp","")

    The above command gets data from your file without sending any data of its
    own to it. If you need to send some data to your ASP page from the Flash
    interface, then in addition to the above command just select the 'Send using
    POST' option from the drop down menu called 'Variables'. Thus the command
    looks like:
    Load Variables ("your_file_URL.asp","", vars=POST)

    (from [url]http://www.smartwebby.com/Flash_and_ASP/basics.asp[/url])

    I'm not sure what you've code looks like at present, but you may find the
    answers there.
