Have client willing to pay for QB -> .NET conversion...

Post by Kingneutron » Mon Aug 14, 2006 6:00 pm

( Note: I checked the FAQ 1st ;-) )

I have a client that has a QB 4.5 prog, circa 1992 and ~4,000 lines of code, that needs some mods. This is a serious inquiry.

o They are willing to pay ~$300 short-term for a single field-length expansion (4 chars to 7 chars) and data validation for the same field -- from alphanumeric -> numeric-only.

o Long-term, they would like the app converted, with the above modification, to .NET and are willing to pay ~$2000 OTD for the entire job.

Please email me if you are willing to work on this project, or know someone who could do the work.

Timeframe / due date: 30 days

Sid6.7,

Well thanks, man, I'm honored that you think so highly of me.
You just made my day.

Best regards,

4000 lines of code in an old QB program? Come on! On a Win 3.1?

Probably comma separated data files, which could be easily converted, but he will have to determine the needs for a new program and the new data fields.

The bid went from $200 at the QBForum to $300 here and no reply?

Probably just a jerk. found his posts all over the place while searching QB
