Using a modem to dial out through a PABX

I am trying to dial out with a modem form a phone that you need to press 1 or 2 to get a line and then press 0 to get an outside line. Have tried inserting the dialing number as 1, 0, phone number. This does not work. It does work when you press 1 or 2 manually and then use 0, phone number. Any one know how to automate the process? The computer is running windows XP and the modem is an external modem connected to the com port.

Thanks for any help
