I want to develop a form to be used by employees to enter data such as a work order number, customer, hours, material used, nature of the work, etc. Some data would be predefined, and would be select from a drop down list, while others would be entered. Once a work order number is defined, there can be only one customer per that work order. Multiple employees could enter their data as it pertains to that work order. So for instance hours for each worker could be totaled as well as for the work order as a whole. At the end of each day, the workorder would be saved as a pdf or html file. Once it is saved it could be reopened. Once the workorder is closed, I'm thinking there could be a submit button that would render it a read only file that could be accessed through the application for viewing purposes only. Each time a new work order was entered a new form would come up. What would be the most appropriate programming language to do this in? Or would it be more appropriate to do something like this using visual basic for applications?

You need a language that can do the job and you are proficient in. The data entry part appears to need a multi-user data base so that different parts of the job be entered as they are completed.
