I am trying to get data, including images and specs from the program autoquotes, I have a subscription and am allowed to do this but I have to do it manually, one item at a time. I want an app that can either open autoquotes, login, and begin extracting the data I need based on manufacturer. I included a screenshot of the app interface, it appears to be MS Access driven and is a subscription service so the files are NOT stored locally.
What I need the app to do:
1)I enter or select a manufacturer for that specific extraction job.
2)The application then logs into Autoquotes with my account info.
3)The application pulls up the selected manufacturer and extracts the displayed data including image and spec sheet (note some items do NOT have images or spec sheets), saves the images and spec sheets, and enters the extracted data into a csv, mdb, xls, etc. file that contains columns for every possible field autoquotes offers (weight/dimensions/description/model number/etc.)
4)The data is then accesible on my PC with a spreadsheet of some kind containg the data and a file folder containing the images/pdfs that were pulled from the listings that contained images/pdfs
The image attached has the areas that need to be extracted circled in RED. Post a message with any further questions about the project.
Payment will be via GAF escrow and money will be released upon completion and successful test of app.
I received my yearly update CD and the update files ARE in access DB format. It is in the format of .MDB , now after installation on my PC there are files called .ADB (I assume AutoQuotes DB) that have similar names with similar file sizes, but I cannot open them in Access. I uploaded the two small ones, I assume they are the ones with the 'data' (i.e. dimensions, descriptions, name, model ,etc.) and you can download them here http://www.jaxdevil.com/projgl57 , There are files in the same format for pictures and for cutsheets (spec sheets) so you should be able to extract data from the system files they are stored in and not by having to launch the application itself. Look at the files and see.
Oh yes, the above link is for the 2 files, one is the MDB file, it has password protection. Post on the clarification board to get the password.
