Project Description


I have a US food database with about 6,000 entries. I would like to truncate it to about 3000 entries and leave only the most commonly used foods inside.

The 3000 food names left will have to be converted to a user-friendly name (but it should still be clear what's the food and what's its brand - If the brand is specified).

You will have to use a lot of common sense in order to do the job.

Column A in the file must not be changed.

Column B in the file must not be changed

The only column that should be changed is Column C:

1. If you decide that a food should not be contained in the database then you erase its name from the column c

2. If you decide to leave a food in the database and change its name - You set the changed name in column c

Milestone :

The first milestone will be for first 500 foods. If the job will be satisfactory then milestones for the rest of the table will be created.

This job is only for Americans/Canadians.

When set a bid, Please let me know how many rows there are in the database (exactly) - so I'll know you've read the job description and looked in the file.
