Proposed inventory program..
Palm Pilot program
Asking for one program that would work on most Palms if needed.
When the main program runs from the palm it would then give four choices ??" print a stock list, print a list of missing stock, search for inventory or to reset saved listings (password protected).
If they choose the ‘print a stock list’ ??" it would offer sorting by stock, model, price or by age of unit. I don’t understand how a palm can print to a PC so I am going to need help with this one.. Does it print with the next hotsync ??" that would be fine..
If the option to ‘clear saved listings’ ??" meaning to start a new inventory search and get an updated listing of the inventory using the files on ‘M:’ drive (see below)- then the program would prompt the user for a password and then clear the list with the next hotsync.
If the option of ‘printing a list of missing stock’ ??" it would offer sorting by price, age, price or model. Again ??" need some help..
If the option to ‘search for inventory’ a spreadsheet like program opens up that has check boxes before the information. As the vehicles are found a check is placed in the box. We need to be able to search for Vin or Stock number. Stock number needs to be an exact match - upper or lower case is not impotant. It needs to search for the last 6 of the 17 digit vin number.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) Exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the Palm - prc (continued)
There are three files on a mapped server that the palm will need to overwrite its own stored data with ??" if requested to do so.. One will contain the inventory of Chevy Cars, another the Chrysler/Jeep and the last the preowned files. Each file contains stock number year, make, model, Vin #, and age of inventory. These files are obtained by access the dealership software using a macro script nightly to generate these text files(it’s a done deal). I will provide you with these files when the bid is accepted.. These files will be on M:\ drive ( a mapped server drive) [url removed, login to view] is the chevy files name, [url removed, login to view] is the jeep one and [url removed, login to view] is the preowned.. Sometimes there are some misc junk in these files ??" generated when getting the info out of our dealership software. But they are very consistent in the column format. I guess what I am saying is some filtering may have to be in place when it grabs that text file.
Printing - It would be great to have headers and titles on the
Palm - PRC
