To do that you will need API calls ... put the following code into the general/declarations section of your code:

Private Declare Sub mouse_event Lib "user32" (ByVal dwFlags As Long, ByVal dx As Long, ByVal dy As Long, ByVal cButtons As Long, ByVal dwExtraInfo As Long)
Private Declare Function SetCursorPos Lib "user32.dll" (ByVal x As Long, ByVal y As Long) As Long
Private Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long)

Private Const MOUSEEVENTF_ABSOLUTE = &H8000 ' absolute move
Private Const MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTDOWN = &H2 ' left button down
Private Const MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTUP = &H4 ' left button up

To simulate mouse clicks and set the mouse's position then use the folloing function calls:

' to set the cursor position : SetCursorPos x, y
' To simulate a left click : mouse_event MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTDOWN, 0, 0, 0, 0
' to simulate right click : mouse_event MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTUP, 0, 0, 0, 0
