Flash will chop off whatever is after the ? mark. What you want to do is ask your flash programmer to create the button so that it calls getURL(passedinurl). Then in your html the path to the flash movie is "myswf.swf?passedinurl=foo.php". getURL takes three arguments: getURL(url [, window [, "GET" or "POST"]]). You can pass those argument values into Flash like I've shown above, as well as any other variables you may wish to pass along by GET or POST. The Flash programmer has to know how to retrieve any variables passed in by query string for use in his button script (such as with loadVariables or similar). This way he should be able to craft a button that will have the flexibility you need.
