My question is not really a technical one. I have been out of work for 2+ years. Am about to start a job next week doing Oracle back end, Forms, and Reports development among other things. I was asked if I could take a look at 3 report requirements and give an estimate on how long it would take to correct errors in these reports. All I have is a user requirement document stating what the report is currently doing and what it should be doing, a partial screen print of an Oracle Form showing correct data, and a sample report page showing incorrect data.
I am finding it rather difficult to give an estimate without seeing tables, relations, code, etc. Is it me or does this seem nearly impossible?
I do not have access to their system yet so cannot view the database or run select statements, run the report, etc. All I have are the documents I listed above.
Thanks for any feedback.
