Automatically enter dates on website

P: n/a
I made an Access application that helps with the financial administration of
a company. It imports downloaded files from a bank. For the download the
user has to enter the start and end date on a website. Now I would like the
user to be able to press a button in the Access application so that the
website gets focus and the dates on that website are entered automatically.
Is this possible? Can Access interact with Internet Explorer?
How would I go about this?
Thanks in advance.

I solved it by using the webbrowser activeX which has on onfocus event. I
let the event checks whether a certain button was pushed. If so it pastes
the date values in the fields using sendkeys commands. Though not to fond of
sendkeys commands, so far it seems to work...
