Running a powershell script in VB with custom variables

I have a script i run to query our exchange 2010 server in powershell,for me this is fine as i can ammend the code as i need etc, however some people in the org could use this feature but wouldnt have a clue where to begin.

Basically i want to be able to design i simple form in Visual Basic express 2010 which will have text boxes such as "Email Address" and drop down boxes that they can select the information they would like to recieve, and a few other things like date ranges etc.

However i then want them to be able to click a button and then it will build the script in VB and run it in powershell.

Is there an easy way to do this?

When it comes to VB.net however i am a complete novice, i have looked around the web and found a sample that can run a powershell file but i need to be able to dynamically update it as people select different reporting features.

You should be able to create the .ps1 file on the fly and then execute it.  Simply output the commands to the .ps1 file.  Here's a couple links that might help (not with creating the file, but using PS from VB....creating the file is the easy part)
