Find problem with existing VB6 applicatioin

Budget $30 - $250 USD

Average Bid $72
Status Closed

I am a VB programmer.

I am putting an app together but I've run into a problem.

The problem is that when I try to perform a particular task:

If I use a value that the program inserts into a text box, the app fails and errors.

If I clear the textbox and add the SAME VALUE manually into the textbox, the program functions perfectly.

I have spend hours trying to find out why with no success.

Here's what I think I need.

Someone to take my app and (after I thoroughly explain the problem through a screen sharing session (SKYPE) on my machine) try it on their machine to see if it still fails.

If it does.. fix it if you can.

Then, I need you to screen share my machine and make it work here.

If you do, I'll pay $50 US

If you do not, no payment.

$50 is the most I can pay for this help, sorry.

    Personally, I'm a native-born American entrepreneur with over a decade of experience in developing technology based ventures. I'm not just merely a facilitator though, I can get right in there and sling code with the best of them. I've been consulting with a focus on Microsoft and Adobe based enterprise technologies since 1997. I've been a nomadic freelancer, since long before freelancing was cool. To say I'm a self starter would be putting it mildly. Presently, I'm living and growing my business in Europe and return to the United States once a quarter. We have developed web and software applications for some of the biggest organizations throughout the world. Over the years we've become known as turn around consultants, turning a projects that have gone awry into successful completed ones. Tired of poor communication and missed deadlines? Give us a call today! The following are a few of my personal favorite projects: * Produced a very modular web based "lead" and event management system for churches around the globe. * Wrote a web application for a vacation property management company that succeeded in netting over $1M for 4 years straight. * Developed a cutting edge web/software/mobile application for a medium sized transportation company that manages *every* aspect of inbound and outbound shipments from purchase order to delivery confirmation. * Developed a Java application for a health care organization that manages the distribution of medicine to end of life patients around the country. This Java app shaved precious DAYS off of the delivery process and resulted in saved lives. * We presently consult on retainer for one of the oldest and largest paid submission search engines on the planet. This particular company using truly bleeding edge Microsoft technologies. Some of our clients have included: The United States Department of Defense, South Carolina Department of Transportation, Verizon, eBay, IBM, BASF,, State Farm Insurance, National Fidelity, UPS, and a plethora of other small and medium sized businesses.
