I beg to differ with you on this point. Since Amy said this was for a client
of hers, it could hurt their relationship if anything goes afoul in the
exchange process (even things not her fault) since she is the "expert" that
was hired. There is no guarantee that it would arrive into the client's
software in the same way it was intended.
Does the client absolutely need the data electronically? Could not a report
be provided and then he can decide what to do with the information that, as
you say, is difficult to understand? My clients do this. It helps them to
understand the data if they have to type it in themselves. If this is not an
option I would suggest finding a program you can both access. Certain ones
have free downloads that you can both pull down and then it would be the
client's responsibility to take that database that you provide him and do
what he wants with it.
Which brings me to the next point: We have had discussions here about
providing reports in electronic form. If I remember correctly, the sense was
either not to do it, or to charge extra. You can search the APG-L archives
for the thread.
