Script to open program and send/execute command in program

Hi,

i want to write a script that executes a program (exec?) .
this program then requires a filename as input.
how do i give it this input in the script so the program will be complete run and close by the script.

e.g.

exec prog.exe

program then asks for filename

"enter filename:"
(want to get filename from script)

press enter

then exits program

back to script


Thanks!
