Add-on MySQL Query Tool

Are there any add-ons out there that adds some kind of tool to run a mysql query from the site. Just a select query. Every month, my staff needs me to grab a list of every member that meets certain criteria for maintenance stuff. The easiest way for me to do this is hop into phpmyadmin, run a query, and c/p the results to them. However, I'd love for my staff team to be able to just run this report themselves straight from the site.

Are there any add-ons that do that sort of thing?

I don't think that there is such an add-on as this is exactly the purpose of phpMyAdmin. So imo implementing a (very small) subset of PMA features in an XF add-on wouldn't really make much sense...

Well, I don't want them to be able to freely query the database. What I'd like to be able to do is create a report that they can run with the click of a button.

There is an addon called querier on here that does exactly what you are lookimg for.
Surely it doesn't do exactly what he is looking for.

That add-on looks to me like it would allow any one with access to run any query they like. That's very dangerous!

I'm with @Thomas.B on this one. PhpMyAdmin is the best solution for this.

Ultimately if they only need to run a report, you'd turn all of that off apart from the SELECT option.

The only way that add-on would be acceptable is if it was restricted to running only SELECT queries. Access to anything else by people who might not know what they are doing is just craziness.
