Overview of the application:
The software consists of an Access database and a macro module in Word. Both were originally coded for Office 97. The software is used to make offers to customers.
These offers tend to be long (more than 20 pages) so this tool saves a lot of time in writing them.
Full source code as well as (sufficient) knowledge of it is available.
The following needs to be done:
- The Access (97!) application needs to be completely converted to Access 2007 (it runs on 2007 now after some changes done by us, but it's still in compatibility mode)
- There is a login functionality right now for different users, this should be extended: upon logon the user should also be able to choose between two different companies (A and B). When the user chooses company A, he makes an offer _from_ (not to) company A (logo's, contact information etc is all from company A) and when the user chooses company B all this is from company B.
- A couple of forms need to be changed. Checkboxes need to be added and when checked, some information needs to be added in the offer. (information will be provided)
- Some folder paths with images used in the offers are hardcoded. This needs to be made dynamic by reading the folder paths from an .ini file.
- There is a macro in Word which connects to the Access DB. This macro is however unstable in Word 2007 and needs to be made fully compatible.
- Minor changes need to be made to the Word Macro (one fixed word document with the general conditions need to be added)
- (not mandatory but preferably): The changed access database and the new Word macro's need to be packed in an installation executable.
The forms are in Dutch. This shouldn't pose a problem we think. Any translation, if necessary, will be provided.
I can imagine that it is hard to make a bid because you don't know the application and the changes in detail. We can also agree on an hourly rate, than walk through the program together and agree on a time schedule.
Connectivity: possible daily through Skype and/or orther instant messaging tool
Payment: through Paypal or escrow (on milestones if you like)
Time schedule: completion within 3 weeks after assignment
On PM's: if you post a PM, please indicate what your experience with Access and Word macros is!
