File Reformatter

Business Requirements.

I have a need for a small application that can perform the following simple functions:

1. Reformat a single multi day historical trade data file into multiple individual trade date files.

2. Perform some minor reformatting

3. Add two new data fields based on simple rules. The two new data fields are as follows;

• A unique identifier with an incremental increase on +1 for each row of data

• A trade identifier to be included in the new file based on the rules detailed below.

The data within the files remains the same, there are no new calculations.

The original file is referred to as the “Historical” file, it contains multiple days. The application will reformat the data as required below and create new files, one file for each day. They are referred to as “Client” files

Operating System - Windows 7

More detailed requirements attached along with sample data files

Addition Questions & Answers That have been Raised

GUI Requirements - Very basic. Only GUI requirements would have minor functionality to Start and Stop process and select the Historical file to be reformatted.

New File Location - New files that are created should be placed in the same folder location as the Historical file

Historical Data Order - The data in the historical file will always be in date time chronological order. If not the application should throw exception error "Please check data is in chronological order, earliest record first"
