    To answer your question, I can give you a positive yes. Python shouldn't have any trouble doing what you want once you introduce it to MySQLdb and your prefered GUI kit; of which Python has many. So you’ll probably want to do some research on this so you can decided which one suits your needs the best.

    If you’re new to Python though it might take you a while to get up to scratch with all this.

    If you havn't read it already then you definitely read “MySQL Connectivity With Python” in Devsheds Python section. And anything else that interest you there. This should get you started using MySQL and Python pretty quickly

    Hope this helps ,
