The menu.php was never used or needed before the flash player was put on the page.
the flash player get's it's information from menu.php
However, the flash player DOES NOT need the detailsID number.
the query needs the detailsID on menu.php to draw the right detailsID and display it in the xml form for the player.
Tried the session and it didn't work. :(
I do appreciate all of the help and suggestions you guys have given me :)
Is there a different "normal" way to going about this, that I am missing?
Am I trying to reinvent the wheel here....LOL...?
