Good Day to all the brilliant minds that may read this. I have a very unique (I think) request. I have mammoth task of having to apply for tax clearence certificates for over 700 employees individually using an online form application. All information is available from our payroll system and can be exported into excel in a linear format ie each row has all employees info in relevant columns.

now the simple way to do this would be to manually copy and paste the data from the spreadsheet to the online form however the online form does not allow copy and paste for some reason. is there a way to create a VBA that can complete the relevent fields of the form by mimicing key strokes and then submit the form. Then mimic the selections to open the new form and move onto the next application form?

hope i'm clear enough (facepalm) also if this has been asked before I truly appolagise

Yes, but its gonna be a nightmare. I would very much suggest looking into a product meant specifically for this purpose; Power Automate Desktop is one I happen to have a little familiarity with (and is also another Microsoft product). Specifically, look at using the Web Recorder to automate tasks in a web browser.

Otherwise, lookup the term Robotic Process Automation (RPA) for similar tools made by other companies.
