I was wondering if there is a way to automate a task on my pocket pc, like how you would automate mouse clicks and keyboard entries on you pc with a macro program?

Check out Pocket Controller (http://www.soti.net).  This is a pretty cool program which will replicate your Pocket PC screen onto your desktop... it has macro functionality which should do what you want.

Good Luck!

I would like to run macros on the actual pocket pc, not in an emulator on my pc.

Macros are unsupported in Windows Mobile 2003, but they do have a reference on which CE strings will work:  http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/wcepb40/html/pbtskRunningMacroFromMacrosDialogBox.asp
