estimating challenges

The quality of information provided for estimating purposes can be varied in my world. The information can be dis-jointed and presented in an unfriendly format which presents us with some challenges.

So in order to connect the dots so to speak and build up elements for costing and other variables, I turn to microsoft access to create tables for the provided information and also to build up the picture the way the form of tender asks.

So next timw your creating an elaborate estimating workbook in excel, consider access also.
