Project Description

I have top programmers from Scriptlance being unable to upload data from Excel files to my mySQL table in my site's database. The site is coded in php Smarty.


Almost all the Cells in Excel table EACH contain several thousands of words, with commas, semi-colons, and full-stops, brackets between the words. So, it is important not to use any of these punctuations as delimiters to break up the text into fragments and allocating those to other Excel columns instead. On the other hand, when the cell position's value is called upon to display in the frontend pages, WHOLE CHUNK of several thousands of words in text belonging to that original cell in Excel file, to be shown in frontend pages.

As I have Top programmers from SL being unable to do this, who definitely can import in Excel data to mySQL table in the database without screwing up? And without guessing on the ability to do so !
At best, they only succeed in showing a fraction of the full text, as the punctuations like commas or semi-colons got wrongly treated as delimiters perhaps and thus prevented the full showing of the text from particular cells in my Excel sheets.

I don't want bids made on a betting approach.

Also, need a programmer not to lose any of my site files, because the last Top programmer missed out several important files when uploading back to my site. Why not work on it directly, since the programmer is unable to even remember which files he specifically downloaded from site before.
