Sharepoint Web Part - SQL

I am looking for a web part that can be configured to access a SQL database.  Instead of just presenting a list of data, I want to be able to have links in the results that allow you to dig deeper with other SQL queries if you click on a particular column in the results.  Does anyone know of a web part that allows this functionality?  All of the SQL web parts I can find just seem to be able to present a list of data from SQL and that is it.

Also, I assume something like this is possible with BDC?  I am licensed for Sharepoint Standard 2010so I dont have a lot of the functionality for that and the Enterprise CALS are really expensive.

i have never seen a web part that does exactly this.  your request is pretty customized.

you could use Data View web part as a starting point, and modify it to do as you need.

You can integrate SQL Reporting Services with SharePoint to create drill down reports. The following references could be helpful
