How do I develop a VB DLL that mimics a submit button?

I need to develop a VB DLL which will mimic the submit HTML page, just like a browser does when we press a submit button. Any ideas on how this functionality can be achieved? Thanks in advance!
I have not done this, so I can't give specifics. However, you can use the WinInet DLL to do this. It has functions that allow you to do GET and POST operations to a web server. Probably what you want to do is a POST operation - posting a set of data back to a specific page on the server.
