Project Description

I would like to purchase this program from the developer as an .exe file. I need to be able to choose the location of input and output data files.

I have a list of around 2000 product numbers in one column and their corresponding UPC numbers in the next column in a CSV file. I need a program written to do the following

1. Remove the first zero from each UPC
2. Search each UPC on Amazon. I will need the item name and description scraped
3. I will need a text file created for each item scraped, all of them named after the product number found in the CSV file. (ex. [url removed, login to view]) I need the product description placed into each of these txt files. Below that the UPC number needs to be placed in an HTML tag: UPCNUMBER
4. I have a product export txt file that will need the product name put into a specific place. The file is filled with some scraped and some unscraped products. An unscraped looks like this:

"NTG0","1007",*," 0070650800404",[url removed, login to view],[url removed, login to view],[url removed, login to view],[url removed, login to view],*,[url removed, login to view],0,0,1,[url removed, login to view],[url removed, login to view],[url removed, login to view],*,"/PDGImages/[url removed, login to view]","/PDGImages/[url removed, login to view]",*,*,*,*,0,0,"TASTE CKY FORTUNE GF CCNT 1.4 OZ",*,*,*,0,[url removed, login to view],[url removed, login to view],*,*,0,0,*,*,*,*,*,*,*,*,*,*,*,*

The product number is 1007 and can be matched to the UPC in the CSV file. I need the title with quotation marks around it to replace the * after "NTG0","1007" so it will look something like this:

"NTG0","1007","This is the name of the product"," 0070650800404",[url removed, login to view],[url removed, login to view],[url removed, login to view],[url removed, login to view],*,[url removed, login to view],0,0,1,[url removed, login to view],[url removed, login to view],[url removed, login to view],*,"/PDGImages/[url removed, login to view]","/PDGImages/[url removed, login to view]",*,*,*,*,0,0,"TASTE CKY FORTUNE GF CCNT 1.4 OZ",*,*,*,0,[url removed, login to view],[url removed, login to view],*,*,0,0,*,*,*,*,*,*,*,*,*,*,*,*

5. I will need a CSV file of all products not found in the same format as the original CSV file: product number in column 1 and matching UPC (with zero added back on) in column 2.
