Microsoft Office excel 2007 - upgrade

Specs: windows server 2003
On a system running windows server 2003.

Each week I use IE to connect to a website and request a spreadsheet of data to be sent to my email. To do this I log on to the site with username and pwd, click two boxes on a long page, enter my email address, and click the "submit" button.

I'm very familiar with .bats and the scheduler but I don't know of a way to automate website connections and input.

Is there a way to automate this process?

Probably, but you'll need to use VBScript.

Thanks. I've been working on using vbscript for this. I have a script that will log onto the website and select links and fill in values. It's not done and it's really a pain. Is it really the best way?

Getting info on using VBscript to access websites is difficult. Can you point me to some tutorials or examples of using it to access and pull data from websites. Thanks.
