Referring to Flash form variables - Macromedia ColdFusion

Hi All, I'm experimenting with converting one of my forms to a Flash form. I have successfully converted the form itself but when it submits the processing page errors looking for a form variable. How do we access form variables using Flash forms? Thx, Mike...

    Can you post some code as well as the errors you're seeing? From what
    I've done with Flash forms so far, if you're using cfgrid inside your
    Flash form that needs to be accessed a bit differently
    (form.gridName.fieldName) but other than that it's standard
    form.fieldName access.

    Thx so much for the help...I think I realized what was happening. With my
    previous html form I was using the onChange property of the list box to submit
    the form when the user clicked a value in the list. With the Flash forms I'm
    having to learn some Actionscript, so I used the getUrl() method.
    Unfortunately I wasn't thinking about the fact that getURL() doesn't SUBMIT the
    form, just calls an URL. So, if the form is not submitted, the form.cboZipcode
    (the listbox) variable will not be available on the next page! Duh. Mike
