urlread "post" variable value

I'm trying to change the parameter that sets the timeframe at (in the dropdown menu)

I've studied the html code behind the webpage and think the variable is called "ddlTimeFrame". Trying to set it to 5 years, I am using:

[s status]=urlread(['' 'aa' '/historical'],'post',{'ddlTimeFrame','5y'});

Can anybody see what's going wrong? The string "s" that is downloaded doesn't appear to change its length considerably if a change the value to '5d' for just 5 days of data.
