Hi Geoff,

Done this alot,  basically...

Web   ->	db	<-	windows app (ado/vb)

The Web and db can be anything you want *nix/windows etc.

In the VB app you have the reporting i.e.
stats, label, letter printing, faxing, email etc.
you can integrate well with any other applications they
may have, e.g. Word or Excel.

Works well,  Ant.
