    Error opening url

    I'm doing a tutorial from Flash MX 2004 actionscript where you input a choice then when it is submitted an asp file matches the choice with something from a db and returns some instructions based on the choice.

    Problem is I keep getting an 'Error opening url' message and the asp file never gets started. I'm using IIS, the asp file is in the correct directory and I can open it through the server by itself.

    I'm using the following code to call it from the flash file

    function submitChoice() {
    var choice:Number = radioGroup.selectedData;
    poll.load(pollURL + "?choice=" + choice);

    If the code is just like above, I get the error message. If I remove the choice attributes and use just poll.load(pollURL); I don't get an error but it doesn't seem to open the file either.

    I don't know where else to check at this point. Any suggestions?

    can you try to trim it down..and do a loadVariables();? and then trouble it shoot from there? just to see if you are targeting correctly..

    permissions all OK?

    also try adding _root to some of your paths where you might be "missing" grabbing data from variables.
