Magellan Software has a project underway that does this.  Reports are
archived and cataloged by date, report type and security is assigned by
user id and password.  The html web "calls" the Magellan CGI program
real time and the report warehouse is accessed in real time.  The web
archetect does not however have to call the CGI program, SpyView/Web
Explorer will present a graphical interface to the user running Netscape
or Internet explorer with no code changes.
