–          In your Start Up form on design mode select. (Insert Active X Control).

–          From the list select Shockwave Flash Object.

–          Then a dialog box will appear and on the dialog box select Properties.

–          Go to “All Tab”.

–          On the Activate Event Procedure type the following codes:

Private Sub Form Activate ()

                Me.obj_flashmovie.Movie  = Application.CurrentProject.Path + “/name of your flash file.swf”

End Sub
