Thank you for the information. You are correct in that I would like to try to use Delphi to accomplish this task. We also have the option of using Visual Studio, but I try to use Delphi as many times as can be justified.
I found examples of how to pick up the URL, the method (POST), the encoding (default in this case) from reading past postings and sample code, but do not think I found any example code showing how to utilize data fields that need to be filled in prior to posting. Would you have an example of this. In this case, with the ASPX Page, after filling in the data and submitting, they did not appear on the address line with the other input variables.

To sublit a form using the ICS HTTP client component, you must have a look at the source of the form and extract the action (that is the URL which will process the form), the method (that is either GET or POST), the encoding (how to format data) and of course all the data fields. Once you have all those elements, you can craft the same request as the one generated by any browser. If you are not that much good at HTML forms, instaed of looking at the form's source code, you may use a sniffer and capture the request sent by the browser when you submit the form. Then you have just to see what is sent and how it is sent. See the link page at my website for links some free sniffer. Contribute to the SSL Effort.
