On MySQL page you can donwload the right ODBC driver to install on your win machine. Then you will be able to make all your MS Office apps to read data from MySQL databases.
I'm using this solution on my little private lan.
MySQL is tested on 7millions records databases, so is enought to me.
If you need to use biggest databases you maybe should consider Oracle, but, i dont know any solution to port Oracle on FreeBSD. I have installed it on Linux for some friends, but, as i still prefere to work on FreeBSD i have decided to use MySQL
