This is a very small proof-of-concept project.

The "concept" is to incorporate an MS Graph object (a stacked bar chart with 5 bars--the bars oriented up and down) with tabular numerical data arranged below with each column in line and below each of the bars. The data table on the form might have 5 to 10 rows. Finally, there would be a separate command button at the bottom of each of the columns, which for now could simply trigger a "Hello world" msgbox.

The precise layout is not important, as the purpose is to prove that this arrangement will work, as well as to capture some raw source code, and any important design considerations, prior to finalizing the exact design later. Some code should be provided, however, that programmatically changes a variety of properties of the graph.

A bonus would be to confirm that this would work with all of the above placed on one of the sheets of a tab control.

No real data will be provided. The coder will be requested to be imaginative in building a small database source table with fields and a few records of fake data.

All bids welcome and appreciated.

A complete and fully-functional single form, as well as complete source code of all work done.

Complete copyrights to all work purchased.

MS Access 2000; MS Graph 2000 Chart objects (i.e. graph9.olb) (a little-used object model in Office 2000); VBA.

Must be 100% finished and received by buyer on:
Mar 26, 2002 EDT

Hello... my name is Ben Etten, a Visual Basic programmer with 6 years of experience privately consulting as well as working on a project by project basis for large companies. My real area of expertise is incorporating Visual basic with the different components of Microsoft Office (Access, Excel, Word, Powerpoint, Outlook, etc.). This is a very unique medium to work in, but it also offers a lot of power, as well as the benefit of a common user interface that users are already familiar with.

I pride myself on customer satisfaction above all else. I strive to continually provide nothing less than professional solutions that either meet or exceed the needs of my clients. I also hold myself to the standard that I treat each client the same, whether it is a $10 project, or $10,000 project. Because of this, I end up with a lot of repeat business and long lasting working relationships (something else I am rather proud of).

I have used MS Graph before, and I am always up to the challenge of creating a unique and functional user interface. After all, if something looks good, people are going to more apt to use it, right?

I am starting a very large project either at the end of this week, or at the beginning of next week depending on how things go. This Graph project would not take me very long, but if you are interested in my services, it would be better for me if you could let me know as soon as possible so that I can make sure that your project gets the attention that it deserves before I get wrapped up in the next project.

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.

Ben Etten
