We paid a coder a few months ago to develop an application that captures data / images from 2 specific websites by screen scraping. The application was written in Delphi7 and is Version 1 attached. Then we paid another coder to make some upgrades to this, which is partially completed but not fully functional (Version 2 attached). Unfortunately that coder is no longer available and we don't have the source code - so we think Version 2 will need to be rebuilt. Our specifications are below, please help us rebuild Version 2. The application enables us to capture stock data from our suppliers into an Access Database, which we use for our online store. We would like to make some modifications to this application. The application works for 2 suppliers, please quote for making the following modifications ONLY on the All Interactive Distribution (AID) supplier: 1. Download images in the larger size available on the website, not the thumbnail size. 2. Modify the application so that it runs faster by only updating the database rather than writing a new record every time, AND allowing the user to only update records with a selected format (eg DVD only). 4. Modify the application so that if the data capture is interrupted part way, there is an option to continue from previous OR to start again. 5. Add in an Express Data Capture option that only checks price and stockcount for each itemcode, and does not check all the other data fields. This Express Option also needs a continue from previous or start again feature. 6. At the end of the data capture application (normal or Express), please add a feature that summarises all records that have been changed and which data fields have been changed. eg Record A - price $[url removed, login to view] > $14.95. Save this summary as a txt file. Please feel free to skype me on michael_cho2137 for further information.
