My datatables are stored in xml-files. The xml-files are actually generated by reading out information from other tools in my business

This is just wrong - extracting data from other tools is valid, moving them to xml files is probably the worst platform to work from.
Get hold of sql server, use Express if cost is an issue (has a size limit of 4gb). Your current xml files can be loaded into tables in a sql sever database.
I would seriously think about getting someone to normalise and organise your data for you it is a non trivial job. Although if you have already done this with xml you may be able to handle it.
Use SQL Server Reporting Services SSRS to produce your canned reports (no analysis or drill down) and look into Integration Analysis Services for data analysis beyond the static reporting requirement.
I may sound SQL Server centric b/c I am, it is by far the best tool for departmental database processing. Don't piss about with Access or Excel go straight for the professional tools.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
