Try

Public Declare Function FindWindow Lib "user32" Alias "FindWindowA" (ByVal lpClassName As String, ByVal lpWindowName As String) As Long
Private Declare Function SendMessage Lib "user32" Alias "SendMessageA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long, ByVal wParam As Long, lParam As Any) As Long
Private Const WM_SETFOCUS = &H7

public sub my_click

    dim retval as long

    Retval = FindWindow(0&, "<the window caption>")
    call SendMessage(Retval, WM_SETFOCUS, 0&, 0&)

    SendMessage Retval, WM_LBUTTONDOWN, 0, 0

end sub

bitsnake: In order to make sure the receiving application knows what's happening you should send a WM_LBUTTONDOWN followed by a WM_LBUTTONUP: most applications use the button-up message to do their click processing, and you should always pair these messages like this anyway.
