You might want to look at Dabo, which is a database application
framework for Python. In about 30 seconds you can create an application
that queries a database, displays the results, and allows for
Currently we do not have an ODBC interface, which is what you'd need
if the data is in Access, since no one involved has written that
module. However, if you are interested in developing your app in Dabo,
we'd be glad to add that module as long as you're willing to give us
the feedback we need to get it working smoothly.
BTW, I wouldn't suggest scaling up to Oracle - why get involved with
all that licensing? There are many open-source databases, such as
PostgreSQL, MySQL and Firebird that can handle large data sets without
getting stuck with huge license fees.
