you need to use a loadvariable function in flash

create a text file and add....

news = text text text etc

(news is the variable name and text is the value which you want to display)

i think the function syntax is like below but you will have to do some research to get it right

loadvariables("path/text.txt", "news");

then using a dynamic form field add the news variable in the properties box
