Built an Application Web, VB, UNIX scripting or any other suggestion?


I need to create something that would collect data in several systems and put them in a Word file.

- First I was thinking of a web page where the user will use a drop down menu or manual input to point toward the right site. (name)
- once the info is on the page the user will have to click on GO...
This Go will initiate a telnet to a system and login automaticaly.. telnet 10.x.x.x -u user -z password
then once loged in automatically launch a command and the results of this command will be saved in a file on the server.
- once this step done it will initiate another command which will do the capture to a different file.
-once doen it will exit and from there the word file need to collect some parts of the 2 files. The pointiers will always be the same, so for example I'm looking at power values, the wors pwer is always at the same place in these output but I need the next 20 characters next to it. Same for the other file but need attenuation next 20 characters... then put this in a template Word file for nice report..

I mentionned only 2 steps here but i will have way more...
Is it better to built this in VB, Web, UNIX scripting, or whatever you would suggest???
The script in UNIX are ongoing process, but I want to put this all together and initiate a single command with the right Site to collect info...

Please need your opinion and direction..
