I've updated the comments on this bid, raised the price to $1000, and added the sample data that needs to be converted on the website. [url removed, login to view]

Bidders, I'm modifying this bid. I have just uploaded some sample excel files along with a sample act database file.
After looking at this further I would like to make some updates.
1. I'm upping the amount I'm willing to pay to $1,000 since this is not an easy project.
2. I would like someone who can work on this full time.
3. If I feel comfortable, I'm willing to release $100 after the first 7 days if I feel the communication is good and the person is a true analyst and can handle the analysis as well as the coding.
4. I would also like the person who does this conversion to be available for updates to the database and ongoing support.

I have just posted the act sdk on the [url removed, login to view] website.
I believe this is the correct sdk for my version of act. From what I understand it uses a VB.Net framework.
Please let me know if you have any other questions regarding this project.
