Subject RE: [Friday] How far can we let the clients push us?
Date Fri, 18 Jul 2003 17:20:19 GMT
We had the same requirement from our client - and we actually implemented
it!  Using JavaScript and the DOM, we're able to add/delete rows, sort by
columns, have tabs for different sheets - pretty slick IMO.  Of course, it's
an intranet app, so we require standards-compliant browsers
(http://webstandards.org/upgrade/).

I think you have to estimate how long it will take to develop (and maintain)
this, vs. a simpler system.  If they're willing to pay you for it - why not?
If you tell them it'll cost them $500,000 for the online spreadsheet vs.
$100,000 for the simpler version, they'll start to see the light.

HTH,

Matt

To them, Online spreadsheet data-entry is a reasonable request.  They don't
want
to change their ways of practise, what can we do?  They are paying us!

Darn, life is so hard!
