    Take a look at ScriptX by Mead Co. There is both a limited, free version
and a full-featured version. I suggest that you peruse the ScriptX manual
[1] first, and if you are interested then visit the informational portion of
their web site [2] -- the caveat being that the informational portion of
their web site requires that you install a couple of their ActiveX controls
(which I think is extremely bad form -- they didn't used to do this). I do
not personally use the control, but others who have seem satisfied with it.
