Flash Click Through Instructions:

All Flash files must use the ClickTag variable as opposed to hard coding a URL. Please note this example below and instruction:

Add an invisible button making the entire area of the banners clickable. Attach the following object action to the button:

on (release) {
getURL (clickTag, "_blank");

This will embed the clickTag (case sensitive) variable in the FLA file. This allows the click-through URL to be modified at any time during a campaign, as opposed to hard-coding the click command in the .swf file. Target="_blank" is required as the "Window" field's option when setting the getURL action ("Expression" unchecked).
