The application should be written in VBA. Excel provides forms where the user enters information (text, buttons, checkboxes, etc). Based on this input, Excel puts together a few sentences. If this were for banking, the sentence might read "You spent $14.95 on a Nirvana CD. Your available balance is now $399.84. You have exceeded your entertainment budget". Note: the topic is an example, not the same topic as mine. The sentence is actually written in 3 ways. (e.g., Your entertainment budget is maxed-out due to the $14.95 purchase of a Nirvana CD...). The three summaries are then displayed. The release version will be shareware. Hence, it needs to show the other options that are not available until after registering (i.e., greying-out some of the Excel worksheet labels). It also needs to be packaged such that anyone can download it and easily it use it as an Excel add-in
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive 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 site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
Deadlines can be negotiated since the development will proceed in stages requiring communication between us. Although the software may not be a huge money-maker, I am willing to negotiate residual income (i.e., percentage of net profit) in exchange for other assistance (e.g., product updates and customer e-mails)
