My google skills have added little to my knowledge of this subject.

I apologize for not having a better background in this topic, however if I continue to answer these redundant questions I may break, mentally.

If I just knew a script could answer the questions for me, I would learn from scratch in order to teach myself how to create the script to answer the questions.

I personally do not know who to ask to determine if this would even be possible. This has resulted in my presence here, among the people I believe may know.


  • Website is Java based according to the IT department (also by inspecting the website)
  • Every order requires the answers to a set of drop down questions

I will give as much information as I possibly can in order to assist those who are attempting to help me.

Thank you for the replies. Over this time away from this question I learned that what I needed to do can be accomplished through a programming language like Java or Python in conjunction with Selenium.

This has been pointed out by a couple of users and I appreciate their help.

I have also found that by using the Tampermonkey/Greasemonkey browser Extension and JavaScript has allowed for a combination of automation of form filling with single clicks as well as increased functionality on the web API that I use for work.

Thank you again, ferriterr

  • Yes. It is possible. – dzieciou May 2 '17 at 6:20
  • Any website automation is possible using selenium. – Kaushal Patel May 2 '17 at 11:20
  • Thank you very much, it looks like I have some new stuff to learn. – ferriterr May 3 '17 at 13:59

If you are new to web automation, try one of the free record & replay tools to get started. These are easier to use than "pure" Selenium/Webdriver:

(I don't have enough rep so I'm posting this as a top level answer rather than a comment. Please delete it if it violates any ToS.)

If you don't have an automation background, you could use my tool to achieve this. It provides a collection of verbs to support automation operations like

  • open a URL
  • click on web elements
  • put text
  • clear text fields etc.

I'd be happy to work with you to write your first automated scripts if you want which you can then replicate for further use. Since I only just launched it, documentation is a little spotty but I believe it can easily achieve what you wish to do.

  • Thank you very much Sai, I will look into your tool and I may be in contact about a whole different tool. – ferriterr May 3 '17 at 14:00
