And what are your needs? Power Builder is a development tool. VB, if you mean Visual Basic, is a programming language and development tool either. And you are "maintaining DB" with them? Indeed, both have basic database browsing capabilities, maybe even some rudimentary management capabilities, but they are not *management* tools. As Mark said, Oracle provides its own comprehensive management toolset named Enterprise Manager (not free.) There are database management tools from Embarcadero, Quest and others. There are even free tools out there (though you get what you pay for.)
