This is a repost that was done for clarification.
The deadline on this project can not be exceeded. By bidding you agree to post updates on your work executables included everyday.
The project is for a piece of software that will query a database full of customers and use the results to print a customized letter, customized envelope, or customized mailing label. We would also like a mass mailer included but that is not required. However any bid with this feature will be given preference to one without.
Mailing label sizes can be seen at: <[url removed, login to view]>
Envelope sizes can be seen at:

The database must be able to be easily queried by someone without sql knowledge. The query fields are first name, last name, zip code (range), city, state. If you can make it expandable that would be a plus. The database must be able to import csv files that do not match the formatting of the database. To accomplish this an import wizard like window should ask which column in the file goes to which column in the database.
Please inform us which database you will be using. We prefer something that is light weight like access but will deal with mysql.
I am attaching two of the csvs (headers only) we will be importing.
A clean GUI is a requirement. I am a software engineer and might have to make changes to your code so clean coding practices as well as commenting must be there.
By bidding you agree to all of the terms involved. If you do not agree do not bid.
