Writing a program that runs another program
I'm working for a pharmacy, and we're looking to remove lot of old records from our system. I've managed to make a text file with keys to the data we're getting rid of, and our software will allow us to delete individual records no problem. The problem is time/effort. There are roughly 10,000 old records that need to be deleted, and I'm thinking maybe I can code a script to help it along? I just need something that can pull the numbers out of the text file, type them into a specific, targeted text field and click a few buttons until they're all cleared. I've never done anything like this before so I'm kind of clueless as to what to do. I don't need someone to code for me, just someone to point me in the direction of a tutorial or maybe a clue as to how/if this is possible.
