LabVIEW and Financial Database

Does anyone know is LabVIEW is appropriate for financial database applications?  Basically, I am looking to build a solution that downloads 20 years worth of financial statements from a Wall Street data provider.  Then perform proprietary calculations and make this available to query to my clients who are portfolio managers.

One proposal I got was from a LabVIEW expert so i wanted to find out unbiasedly if the developer community would use LabVIEW for this type of application.

LabVIEW can do it; it wouldn't be my first choice, but it can definitely do the job.  It would be a lot slower than a solution done in, say, .NET programming.  LabVIEW's strength lies in the fact that it's extremely easy to program, but it generates a lot of code and it's optimized for ease of programming, not conservation of computer resources.

I would say Labview would be a fine choice depending on your experience level with Labview.  There are plenty of database tools and support for Labview. NI has a database toolkit. There is some Labview database info on Lava fourms here.  An Labview ADO toolkit is also available.
