    I created a .bat file to start some programs for me at once but is there something i can add to it to automatically log me in (user/pass) as well?

    Log onto what? The OS, an app, a website, etc.

    on this particular pc is XP, but a program not a website. Its a program called workdesk but for example purposes lets say in order to use word you have to click on word and a log on prompt comes up, you type in a user name and pass then a blank doc comes up. Say i got a .bat to start word but just the logon prompt comes up and i have to log in, i want to see if i can do something in the .bat to log me into word also, make sense?

    There's a scripting command language called AutoIt that is good at things like this. . . let's you get control of a window (or start a program if not running) and complete dialogs, emulate mouse clicks, etc.

    I've used it for automating a variety of tasks that the scheduler and batch files just wouldn't do.

    Sounds like you need to have a talk with your IT Manager where you are required to use this package.

    A lot of RMT's use AutoIt to work fishing bots or farming bots.

    Only after setting up VPN to work. If it is the product that I'm thinking of, it is a temp agency management package that logs everything to a server similar to Goldmine or ACT!.

    If it isn't the one I'm thinking of, there's not much use putting something that interferes in this way between yourself and your selected office suite.
