i'm not asking anyone to write this for me. i'm just asking for any pointers int he right direction. (ANY direction is apprciated at this point.)
i haven't coded in quite some time but i find myself in the middle of a new project that will probably encompass a great deal of Java coding.
right now, the system has a couple parts. It's an Oracle DB with a VB front-end. The other front-end is linked to the same DB thru a Java Web-Application.
right now, the reports are generated manually by various SQL packages started thru the VB application. the new reports are supposed to be updated daily, automatically, and displayed in the web-application.
does anyone know of a pre-packaged software program that can be modified to do this? or possibly tip me into the right direction?

i forgot to mention, that the data generated by the SQL packages is placed in an Excel spreadsheet. the final reports don't have to stay in this excel format. i just thought i'd add that that's how it is now.
