I need to learn how to create a bot and would deeply appreciate any help I can get.

The bot needs to be able to do specific operations at the same time(s) each day:

(1) Click on a button;

(2) Click on another button;

(3) Fill in specific values in the cells of the screen that appears;

(4) Select ANY option from a pull-down menu on the same screen; and

(5) Click on another button to close the screen.

Assume that I'm fairly trainable but have NEVER done this before.

I know it's not the answer that you want, but google for "macro recorder," and you can probably save yourself a lot of coding.

I really don't know how to direct you to begin, but since this is one of those gray areas of computing, see if there's another way to accomplish your task like via a REST API.
