To create a software programme that will calculate royalties for our authors (we are book publishers). The programme would run on a Windows platform and will be single user.
I am creating a full specification, which can be given on request. This version of the programme will be very basic. Once fully tested, then more will be added. For this 1st version there will be only 2 drop down menus; AUTHORS (which will allow the selection of a specific author (we have around 30 at the moment) – REPORTS, of which there will be about 5.
A later phase will allow for the import of an ASCII or Excel file of author book sales. It will also link or incorporate an INVOICING and STOCK control.
For each author, there will be around 10 input fields (would prefer “free format” naming) that will be required, and each will be used in the final calculation.
The Maths will be simple, but about 4 separate; ADD, MULTIPLY and % calc.
