Use an OPC server on the PC and you can use almost any programming language you want.
You can also use the OPC Server provided by Omron and do your HMI with Visual Basic or excel with an active X. It's very simple to use and you have all the power of the programming langage that you use.

I did a few complex HMI with CX Supervisor. This software was unfortunalty a requierment from my customer. It seems to be user friendly at the begining but a lot of the fonctions don't work properly. You need to be very creative to do what you want.
