Access to CSV translation/Conversion Programmer needed...

Hello...

Looking for talented individual to assist me in writing a program to
take a given ms-access database and manipulate and output a CSV file.

Need to output some fields by combining several fields from within the
access database -- mostly text fields that are being put togather to
form a full product description.

Need some mathematical calculations to be performed.

Need some cross referencing to another access file to determine product
types, and based on the values in the second access file, output
appropriate information to the CSV file.

Need validation that all products in first file, exist in second file
-- if not, they must be added to the second access file with "default"
values.

Have a full white paper on the exact translations and exports that are
needed.

Please contact me at do********@bigd esert.net.

this is a brain dead question. So you create a query to get all the
fields you want then you output that to a CSV file. Terribly tough.
Gimme lots of money and I'll write it.

Well, there is much much more to it than that. If it was a simple
query, I could do it myself rather simply and not need the paid
assistance of anyone.

I don't think I'll be considering anyone for the project who starts out
"This is a brain dead question..."

I don't think I'd follow through on an inquiry from a potential
client who was no better at explaining the requirements than you are
-- if they can't outline what they want clearly enough for me to
understand why they can't do it themselves, then it's unlikely that
communication is going to improve.

There will certainly be those who will respond. I'd wager I know one or two
regular posters in this newsgroup who will, in fact.

I do not make the assumption that any client will be sufficiently
well-versed to create their own Requirements Document, with clarity and
rigor.

I view that it is the function of a business data analyst to work with the
client to elicit the details needed to fully express and to document the
Requirements (that analyst may or may not also be the designer and
implementer of the solution to those Requirements).

Is there any generic way to use C++ libraries from within Python. I seem to recall that there are tools to generate wrappers for C-libraries semi-automatically. But those were still way too cumbersome, IMHO. What I would like to have is some module (or whatever), with which I can say "load this C++ library", and then, "create that C++ object" or "call method x of C++ object y".

Do I get more scalability if I split my database? The way I calculate things now, I'll be lucky to get 100,000 records in my Access 2003 mdb. Here some math: Max mdb/mde size = 2000 x 1024 = 2,048,000k Let's say on average each record in the database consumes 15k 2,048,000/15 = 136,533 records
