Who Can Handle A Database Project?

Hi Guys,

I need someone to work with on a database project. As a website designer (though I have been experimenting on database on my own), this is may eventually be my first database project and I need your help. From the Excel spread sheet sample I saw, it looks like the project will be a bit complex.

There are three things I need right now and they are,

1. Someone to go through the Excel Spread Sheet to determine the necessary question to ask and if you can handle it. The Spread Sheet has been attached

2. State how much you will collect on the project

3. Advise me on how much I should charge my client.

Please, I need the immediate response of anyone who feels he can be of assistance.

You can also send a mail to Ikej40@yahoo.com or send SMS to 08025189515 (its a deaf and dumb phone)

The truth be say, I no wan fall my hand because the client respects me a lot.

Thanks a million!

@ Omnipotens, DHTML and others interested in quoting for this job.

i just spoke to my clients a few moments ago who has not been reachable because he

was in one of the remote villagers in Rivers State.

These are my findings;

1.  the project would would be to calculate staff salaries, drivers performances, fuel consumption etc

2.  they would input data from their various locations across the country.

3.  the client knows how to use excel spread sheet very well and he will supply the

     foundational data to that effect including the formulars for calculations.

4.  Only him will have acess to the changing of the formulars

5.  there could be two to three acess levels to different staff.

6.  We should decide if the staff would submit their data though a

     form at the site or directly to the database.

Summary

His staff will enter data from diferent parts of the country.

Only him will have acess to the main database and calculations

will also be carried out based on the formulars he will supply.

He has also giving a free hand to make any necessary adjustment in order to get the best result.

My Request

If there are any further questions to be asked, pls let me know promtly to enable

me forward them to the client. Remember that I have not handled such project

before  and I am only trying to create a Master Mind Team.

lastly, if you are interested in this project, just drop your contact to enable me reach you thanks.

Wishing you the best of 2009.

webdezzi,

It really is something unofficial per se. If I had known, I would have collected them all year. I just see a quote I like and I notify Seun to write it down. Hopefully he is. Regardless, I will start collecting such quotes next year and I guess will organize a "quote of the month/year" competition of my own.

I have a php script that can convert excel data directly into mysql query and upload it directly into a database and even dump of the result to the screen. I also have a get-my-contacts form and loads of stuffs that can help u with the project.

I can always organize an online demo of these stuffs, so u will not think i just dey lenu-pa for nutin.

Anyway, the important thing is the price. If u wish you can call me on 08027069307/07030290749/www.contact.mwebng.net

As has been rightly pointed out by OmniPotens, you would need to provide more information to help the people that would need to help you.  I want to believe that the attached spreadsheet would not be the only briefing you got from  your client - while taken at face value it might seem to contain quite some information, I doubt if this on its own would suffice to design and subsequently build an effective database. 

Ideally you would want to provide more information on the business process(es) that generated the information contained in the spreadsheet - descriptions detailing business variables and rules would be important in deriving an entity-relationship diagram covering the business logic that your client might want to have implement within the DB-driven web application. This would eventually form the basis for designing and building a feasible (read normalized) backend DB to the proposed web application.

In the absence of such information, I think it would be too early to expect reasonable quotes for collaboration on this project or advising you on figures to charge the client - but then again you might have people willing to give some ball park figures regardless.

On the whole, having pointed out the high regards you command with the client, I would say tread carefully and take care to ensure you do your due diligence in fully understanding the client requirements before rushing to quote for the job - better to turn down a job and leave your integrity intact than taking on work in a haste and end up disappointing the client. With a detailed knowledge of what your client wants, I'm sure there are developers here that are capable of delivering your required solution (within budget, in time, meeting and exceeding your expectations).

I am neither a web developer nor a database designer, just chipping in my 2 kobos worth from my limited knowledge. Regards

Are you trying to write a program that will handle online ticketing? Is that the main concept?

From what I see here, it's like a receipt or a daily sales inventory. Hope I'm right?

Well, throw more light on what you want to do with this.
