What I need is software to automate the copy and pasting of the database. I do not want to reveal the name of the database publicly. I will reveal it to the winner. It will be very easy to scrape.
The script will allow me to save the scraped file as a csv file that I can import into an excel spreadsheet. The way it will work is that I will be on the first screen of the search results from the database then activate the script. It will scrape the data on the screen then advance to the next page of results.
Requirements Interview Answers:
To help you bid more accurately, the employer was interviewed about the requirements for this project. Below are their answers.
What kind of work do you need done?Software related (Includes desktop applications and internet websites)
What do you want the worker to do on this project?
The worker will analyze the problem and propose a software-based solution to the problem.
The worker will take the requirements and translate them into the language of the computer (and test it).
The installer will move the software from the place it was created (which is called the development or QC environment) to where you will use it (which is called the production environment). The installer then tests the software to make sure that the installation was done properly and completely.
Req. Doc. Type:
What kind of documentation do you want for this project?Informal documentation - As the employer talks back and forth about the project with the worker, those conversations become the requirements.Remember to communicate ALL of the details of your project on the vWorker.com site. If you don't, and there is a dispute, then important details of the contract will not be documented and cannot be taken into account in arbitration. If you feel you MUST go offsite (for example, using the phone or IM) then afterwards post everything onsite and get the other party to post that they agree to those contractual terms.
What kind of software should the worker create (and/or install)?A desktop or server program: This software runs on a user's own PC/workstation, or on a server.

Will this project include a database?No, it does not include a database.
Does the worker need to create an installation program?Yes AND the program will be installed on only a single computer.
