For example, if you are editing a Word.doc using the same repetitive steps, you could simply create a Word Macro to do this.
Word Macros can be created by 'recording' the key strokes and/or mouse actions you make, then you stop the recording and run the macro, and it will repeat the steps.
Is that similar to your needs?
Could anyone point me in the direction of a Windows keystroke emulator? Specifically, I'm looking for a program that will read characters from a file (including tabs, return, escapes, Function keys, etc), and will store them in the keyboard buffer to be replayed in a window/program to automate what is a very manual, repetitive task? Many moons ago I had such a beast, but I'd be dating myself to say how long ago.
