I want to have a method of creating MS-DOC files that contain many reports, graphs, and bits of text. I'd prefer to run it on Linux. The data for the graphs will come via connection to Oracle.

So basically I want to script the pulling of the data, the creation of the graphs, the annotations and additional text, and create a final file that MS-Word can painlessly read.

But after seeing Tableau, I want that. How much does it cost, and can it do the thing I want as well as all it's other magic. I'm waiting for them to get back to me on the price, they don't have the server price on the web.
