Using VB.Net 2005.

I would like to automate the process of opening a web page (this does not have to be visable) - and then enter user name and password into the web page and submit, and then interact with the other forms on the page.

Thanks for any help.

    No, I need to log into a web site and perform a task every day.

    I would like to create a VB.Net program that will do this for me.

    I am having problems with submiting my user name and password.
    I have tried: IE.document.all("FormsLogin").Click()
    But it doesn't seem to do anything.

    You have to submit the form..
    I think
    might be more like the thing you need

    where "FormName" is the name of the <FORM name="FormName"></FORM>, not the submit button.
