Excel optimization

I have hw1.xlsx open and I want to do the following:

B12 and B13 contain integers (inputs) upon the rest of the spreadsheet depends on. The spreadsheet then computes a total in cell B14. Pressing F9 repeatedly will display slightly different totals in B14 (for any particular B12-B13 pair) as there are random numbers involved in the computation.

I want to test out different integer combinations in B12 and B13 and read, say, 10 refreshes of the page (get an average) and the find the maximum total average value of B14 for each batch/tuple combination. After trying about +/-12 values for what was in B12 and +/-12 values for what was in B13, I want the B12-B13 values that gave the highest B14 value.

Is this hard to do and what kind of AutoIt functions are key (parsing and entering values into cells)? The 10 replications for each tuple combination aren't that important, I can also just settle for one value.

Should be possible to do with AutoIt.

To work with Excel please have a look at the builtin Excel UDF in the help file.
