I tried to search for this so pardon me if this has been answered.

I work in tables. I want the cell on the left to have thumbnails you click on. When clicked a flash movie will load into the cell on the right. I can't figure out how to set the target to the cell. I'd prefer not to use frames. Anyway I can do this?

you could control a stopped movie displaying the same bg colour as your page bg by using Javascript and FSComand

but i dont like the sound of this method an cant really think of an alternative way that would suit your needs

Hmmm..I see where you're going with that but I'm not sure if I like that either. I'll give it a try.

i suppose you could use php or another scripting langauge that takes your fancy. By omitting the name of the movie and passing this using a querystring

I think I'm just going to cheat and have the thumbnail open another web page that looks the same so it looks like its loading it in the cell but it's really just another page. I'll come back and link when finished.
