I would suggest using Python.  It is platform independant and can be made into a 
windows executable and if necessary can be run on Mac or Linux.  You would 
have to be careful as to which GUI library you used though.  I would use tkinter
for this project or WxWindows as both can run on all 3 major platforms.

Macros are not the way to go here.

Like I said Python.

The box said install win 98 or better so I installed Linux :-)
