Martech Computers Invoice Scraper


The Martech invoice scraper is a macro enabled word document that programmatically scrapes invoices and inserts all the scraped information into an Access database. Martech Computers is a small IT and computer shop in the metro Atlanta area. The company has been in business since the early 90s and has invoices written in standard Microsoft Word Documents. Unfortunately for the company, the rate of business has not allowed them to implement a more sophisticated method of building invoices or the ability to look at customer and service history.


The Martech invoice scraper hopes to solve that by allowing the user to specify the directory where older invoices are located and programmatically going through each document and scraping the invoices for customer, invoice, and sale items information and putting them into an Access database.
