Alright, stay with me on this one.
I have a client that uses an inventory management system called fishbowl inventory management. They have a database of thousands of parts for lighting fixtures and want to be able to print out a "where used" report. It's a basic inventory management report, but for some reason it doesn't come built into the software.

For those that are unclear about a "where used" report is, it's where a client has 20,000 parts and 6,000 products. If the client wants to replace a part, they'll want to see how many products that part fits into, and they'll need a "where used" report to find out where that parts is used in which products.
The inventory software does have a system to find which products specific parts fit into, but there's no way to create a report from it within the software, or print off the reports so the products can be tracked down.
Also, when printing off shipping labels from the inventory management software, the labels print find, but when the labels are emailed to the clients, the formatting of the PDF gets all messed up. Someone please help.
This should be simple. But it's not.
The software and inventory database all live on a remote server that the winning bidder will have access to. If this sounds like something up your alley please bid. The winning bidder will also have the option of more work in the future with parsing data in the iReport system.
