    This will show you how to create a array of links in your text file and flash.

    1. Create a Dynamic Text
    2. assign an Instance Name (Example: mylinks)
    3. set to "render as HTML (Look for "<>" in the Properties window)
    4. Set your lines to Multiline (in the Properties window)
    5. create a text file with your links Example below

    link0=<a href="http://www.wattsupnow.com/" target="_blank"> Wattsupnow Designs</a>&link1=<a href="http://www.flashkit.com" target="_blank"> Flashkit</a>&

    6. put your text file in the same directory as your .swf
    7. Add the actionscript to your .swf

    Actionscript on first frame or where needed

    txtLoad = new LoadVars ();
    txtLoad.load ("mylinks.txt");
    linkfile = new Array ();
    txtLoad.onLoad = function (success) {
    	if (success){
    		for (p = 0; ; p++){
    			if (this["link" + p] != undefined){
    				mylinks.htmlText = mylinks.htmlText+this["link" + p] + newline;
    stop ();
