Is there something similar to VBA: Dim myBrowser As Internet Explorer
Which allows me enter data and click
The name1_source is from the browser's source (Chrome, IE, etc). I can open a browser, but cannot enter text and cannot click

Not sure what you're looking for but there are lots of user input functions, like input(), inputdlg(), menu(), listdlg(), etc. Unfortunately, and VERY SURPRISINGLY there is no convenient way to enter a matrix of numbers, like those. That is, for some reason, after decades of development, there is no easy to use griddlg() function where you can enter a matrix of numbers.
Again, I'm still not sure what kind of user input you're looking to collect.

Thanks, I need to insert a string in the search box of a website. Basically I need to do the 3 steps below:
1) if you open your browser to Google
2) and in the search box you enter the string: rafting AND latvia AND 2011
3) Once you CLICK the search button the next page reads "About 89,900 results". I need to save that number or string to Matlab
I can do step 1 by using
But once in the website, how do I insert the char from matlab?
After inserting the text, how do I click search from matlab?
After clicking search, how do I save the result to matlab?
I know I could set the link01 with the string to search, as
However other sites do not have that option, so I need to be able to insert the string in the search box.

Look at webread, you don't need to open the browser to get the html output from the search. If you want a human to enter the content, give them an inputdlg and just use webread under the hood.

@IA, That's a fair enhancement request but it will carry more weight coming from directly from you!
Have you considered just using the variable editor (for non-MATLAB Compiler uses)?
x = zeros(4);
