What is the best way to have a small window displaying results from sql select statement on windows desktop

I have been doing some research and can't seem to find the best way to do this.  I want to have a widget, gadget, or little window that just displays results from a sql select statement.  I want to be able to have a refresh button or a timer on it so it can refresh through out the day.  I do not want to do this in excel or have to open a report.  I also have very limited skills in programming and should be considered a beginner. I am proficient in getting data out of sql and writing sql statements so that part for me is easy just need a way to display results to users.
