Transition over dynamic content
Here's what I'm trying to achieve: I have a dynamic survey that pulls from a database and saves the answers back to said database. Now I want to make it animatedly awesome. Putting it super simply, I want the multiple choice question to appear within a red square. After choosing their answer and clicking submit, I want that square, with their chosen answer, to move off screen, and the next question to come on screen, let's say in a blue square. That question gets answered and goes off in a different direction, and it continues until we're out of questions. These questions (the text in the actual question, not the answers) are dynamic will be periodically changed via an XML file that's updated using .net, so they're not embedded in the flash animation itself. I have the dynamic survey bit all taken care of, I just need to add animation to it.
I hope that makes sense to someone out there. Can anyone suggect any other forums/sites that might be able to help me if none of the COW gurus are able to help?
I have mocked up a demo file for you: http://grumblebee.com/stuff/cow/lines.fla
Here's the (frame one) code that drives everything. Pick it apart and see if it will work for you:

Wow! Thanks Marcus! I will get with our DBA over the next couple days and see if we can get this to do what we're looking for. You went above and beyond, thanks again!
