We have a suite of fairly complex Visual Basic macros that run inside Microsoft Office applications on Macintosh computers and PCs. Due to programmer availability problems, I am looking for a new VBA expert who can read and understand the existing macros and add new features according to our instructions. The new programmer must be able to test on Mac OS 9 and 10 and as well as on various Windows versions OR be aware of differences in VBA libraries on both platforms. We will also provide functional descriptions of new macros yet to be developed and expect ongoing communication with the programmer via ICQ or similar IM. The successful bidder will be able to stuff the macros for Mac OS users and zip them for PC users along with instructions and sample files (supplied by us) and upload them to a specified download site. Initially, we invite bids for this new development project: A utility (VBA macro) that in a Word document scans character strings ending with hard returns and flags exact duplicates by changing the color of or otherwise marking the duplicate string(s) and then deletes the exact duplicates if the user wants that. String B is an exact duplicate of string A if the sequence of characters is the same, regardless of font, style, or font size. Your bid should be all-inclusive for this subproject. A sample Word file can be provided for testing. Modifications to existing macros will involve more complex programming than this simple utility. Preferred payment method is Paypal or bank-to-bank transfer. We seek a long-term partnership. We expect full transfer of copyright to us upon payment and uncompromising loyalty as regards non-disclosure of our projects to third parties. Thank you for bidding if you are qualified.
