Would this project require any type of reporting which is highly formatted? If not I would Stefan recommended and us VB6 (or VB.Net, if so use the MS Oracel Data Provider). This will give you all the functionality you will need. If basic reports are required you could always use the MS Excel object to create them (Excel must be on the machine though).
