I have been trying to make this work for 2 weeks, I couldn't get one built, and I couldn't find one.  I tried using javascript/php and nothing I tried to do worked.  I am simply trying to get it to scroll horizontally.  I need to get the information from the database, put it in a javascript array, and then get it to scroll, but I couldn't get anything to work for some reason, any advice on a third party script somewhere.

Why not flash?  I'll have to take a look but one of my coworkers had some sorta simple flash kit that allowed you to make really cool banners. It wasn't complicated to use either.  I'll try and get back with the url for it.

But if you're looking for just text the HTML scrolling marquee is ok.  I'd do a search on JS for any scripts for scrolling text since the marquee is an ugly thing to use like Blink was ;)

actually marquee is regular xhtml.  But for one I think it's deprecated, and another it ONLY works in internet explorer, that was my first option, but I decided not too, because it was suppose to reach businesses, I think that only in ie, wouldn't work for this situation.

I have been trying to make this work for 2 weeks, I couldn't get one built, and I couldn't find one.  I tried using javascript/php and nothing I tried to do worked.  I am simply trying to get it to scroll horizontally.  I need to get the information from the database, put it in a javascript array, and then get it to scroll, but I couldn't get anything to work for some reason, any advice on a third party script somewhere.

THis would be a great idea, I have a bunch of flash books, and I was thinking about trying to get better with it(enough to do this), but with my current project load, there is no way I would have the time right now, so that would be greatly appreciated.
