    VBScript(SendKeys)

    I am trying to create a VBS to send keystrokes to an application and basically autofill a registration form so i dont have to do it literally, about 500 times.... once per computer. This is the scripts I have completed so far...

    It brings the proper window to the front, and then does nothing. If I were to press any key on the keyboard, it begins typing in the selected field. If i reference it to bring up an open notepad, it type accordingly there. I am not the greatest at VBscript and mostly just pull things from various sources and try to make them work together.

    Code:
    Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    
    'WshShell.Run "VSPACE"
    WshShell.AppActivate "License Wizard"
    WScript.Sleep 500
    
    
    ' name
    WshShell.Sendkeys "RPS"
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{TAB}"
    'Company
    WshShell.Sendkeys "ROCKLAND PUBLIC SCHOOLS"
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{TAB}"
    'Country
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{TAB}"
    'Address
    WshShell.Sendkeys "52 MACKINLAY WAY"
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{TAB}"
    'City
    WshShell.Sendkeys "ROCKLAND"
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{TAB}"
    'State
    WshShell.Sendkeys "MA"
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{TAB}"
    'zip
    WshShell.Sendkeys "02370"
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{TAB}"
    'email
    WshShell.Sendkeys "TECHNOLOGY@ROCKLANDSCHOOLS.ORG"
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{TAB}"
    'phone
    WshShell.Sendkeys "7818718415"
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{TAB}"
    'reseller
    WshShell.Sendkeys "OCKERS"
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{TAB}"
    'type
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{TAB}"
    'next
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{TAB}"
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{TAB}"
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{ENTER}"
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{TAB}"
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{TAB}"
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{ENTER}"
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{ENTER}"
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{ENTER}"
    WshShell.Sendkeys "{ENTER}"

    You didn't say what KIND of form, and who calls it up and how?
