Automating internet search engine tasks

We subscribe to an internet database search service called Nexis, which allows us to perform biographical searches on individuals, executives or companies. The search engine will generate a comprehensive report on the aforementioned from numerous sources, including such things as address, phone #s, real estate owned, employment, companies owned, relatives and business associates, professional licenses and certifications, email addresses, cell phone subscriptions, criminal records, etc. In order to perform a search, you must manually enter a person or company's name, address, position/level, etc. This can be very tedious if you have to perform it for a large list of companies or people. Is there a way to automate this process so that my computer automatically and repeatedly enters the required information from a given list of names (copies and pastes the required information into the user interface, hits the "search" button and then the "print" button? Thanks.
