You should create the application in Visual Basic 5.0 At the start of the program you should connect to the database using ODBC. When youre connected you can manipulate the database using VB's strong database features.
In order to use CGI in VB you must redirect the stdin and standard stdout.
Remember to diconnect the SQL Server at script exit
Note that this will only work in Windows NT/95 webservers, and you must create a setup program from your VB project

Using VB cause a lot of overhead.  You can consider using perl+odbc driver, since perl is quite powerful.  You can also use c+odbc driver, which gives you the best performance.
