Project Description

Hello Guys,

I need someone to write a simple script in Visual basic (or propose another suitable, fast and user friendly language) to scrap the product information from a website. The website is in the attached file labelled "website name"

The output of the script should be similar to the attached file labelled labelled "Output File"

The other option is to fix an existing script created in visual basic. I initially used another consultant to create this script which used to work well but has since been giving errors. See attached "Inv Opt19". You may choose to fix this script and have the output created in excel.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THIS IS A SCRIPT I RUN MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY SO I NEED IT TO BE USER FRIENDLY AND FAST SINCE A NUMBER OF PRODUCTS ARE COPIED or SCRAPPED. THE PRODUCT INFORMATION NECESSARY FOR YOUR SCRIPT ARE IN THE ATTACHED OUTPUTFILE. WHEN CREATING THE SCRIPT I NEED TO BE ABLE TO ADD AND REMOVE PRODUCT I WANT TO SCRAP.

I HAVE GIVEN YOU TWO OPTIONS IN THIS PROJECT - CREATE A NEW SCRIPT OR FIX AN EXISTING SCRIPT.

TO BE SURE YOU HAVE READ ALL MY REQUIREMENTS, INDICATE EITHER OF THE OPTIONS BELOW IN YOUR TITLE OR AT THE TOP OF YOUR APPLICATION:

1) CREATE A NEW SCRIPT (IF YOU WANT TO CREATE A NEW SCRIPT)

OR
2) FIX EXISTING SCRIPT (IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO FIX THE SCRIPT IN VB)

THANKS.
