I have a flash map and table on my website that needs updating. I can locate the SWF files but not the FLA files and the original programmer is not available. Several programmers tell me that my only option is tho start over. Thoughts?

If you don't have the source files, most likely you'll have to start over. But there is Software out there that could help you decompile an swf, and return it to a fla. I have used Sothink SWF Decompiler in the past to retrieve some sounds from an swf, and it worked.

Be WARNED, though, that decompiling is not guaranteed to result in an intact fla file. Some things will probably be missing, but it's a good way to start.

What do you mean exactly? Could you be more specific?

I was just curious as to whether you would be in a position to take this on as a programming task -- for a fee.  The link is: www.harrellassociates.com/routemap.asp  Some of the airlines and routes are out of date.  If so, I suggest we discuss off-line.  I can be reached at 212-358-1709.
