Creating VB App and Oracle Transfer to SQL Server

Hello all. I have a question and I want the best practice that I should use to do this.  I need to run some code against a Oracle database to populate some tables.  After this is completed I need to transfer all this data to SQL Server.   The oracle population has to be completed via VB Code.  My initial thought was to run a VBS file or something then schedule a DTS transfer from Oracle to SQL of the tables needed.  Do a truncate on the tables in SQL then a DTS transfer.  This would be scheduled to run once a night.  However, I also need a VB exe to allow the user to enter certain criteria based on a Date and then manually click to run the same process anytime they want.  Do you think what I should do instead is write all ADO code to grab from Oracle and insert to SQL via all VB Code instead?  Is there a way for me to have a VB exe that has a button but also I could schedule at night to run starting at a certain procedure call so it would automatically run with a default date I provide it, Instead of creating 2 seperate exe programs.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have done this in 2 ways.  Maybe one will work for you.

1 Have a form pop up for the user to enter values.  If no values are entered within a time period set by a timer on the form, close the form.  When the procedure that called the form gets no return value, set it to the default.

If ReturnedValue = "" Then
    'use default values
End If

--------------------------------------------------------

2 Have the program check for a command line parameter to override the default.

temp = Command$
If Len(temp) then
    'set varables to values in temp
Else
    'use default values
End If
