Feasible --> Practical? revBrowser automation

Hello everyone,

I am looking for advice and opinions regarding the following.

We have a product that uses a web application that requires the user to
input values in particular fields and possibly make selections via drop
down menus and check boxes.

Once the user has completed the input and selections they push a submit
button and the information is sent and within a few seconds a response is
received with a web page that has returned values (not the original but
calculated based on the user input values and also particular selections
shown in drop down menus (no check boxes are ever returned).

We have a table with all the necessary information that needs to be input
each time and then the user needs to record the returned information. The
table contains several thousand lines (this equals several thousand times
the procedure described above will need to be done).

Can this be done using the revBrowser and reading the values in, submitting
it and then reading from the response web page?

I know reading from the web page can be done by parsing the html code but
what about the first two steps?

I appreciate any suggestions or reference projects that have something
similar in whole or partial.

regards,

Glen
