Looking for someone to migrate a non-WordPress database to WordPress.
Please provide a price for completing this project. Time is of the essence. Start date and completion date are negotiable.
I'm an experienced programmer, but I am looking for someone who already has the tools for mapping one database to another and doing database migrations from MS Access to WordPress mySQL database. This should be quick and easy for someone who has experience doing migrations like this. (It should be cheaper for me to hire someone than to take the time to assemble / create the tools required to do this conversion.)
Prefer someone who is experienced with database migration from custom CMS to WordPress and already has tools available to map the old database to the new database and perform the migration.
(I know I am repeating myself, but I will only accept a person who is experienced in doing what I need to done.)
All specs are subject to change based on YOUR suggestions from your experience with similar projects.
This should be a quick and easy project for someone with the requisite experience.

See database layout attached.
Old CMS is built in MS Access. Database layout attached.
Migrate the existing posts to a WordPress database which will reside in the same location as the current website.
Channels = WP Categories
"Reviews" is ONE Additional Category.
Example: "Review Type" would be stored as a post title in the category Reviews in WP database: "Book:'Defrauding America'by Rodney Stich"
Assign to category / channel - create categories as needed.
Headline = WP post title
Insert date and author at beginning of each post followed by the content table body.
leave formatting of content body as is. (This may change if it causes a problem)
I would like a suggestion about how to insert the images in the post. Their is one image per story. It could simply be inserted after author/date and before the content body. images can remain in the images directory which is in the root directory.
Use date to set publication date in WP Database.
I will provide the userid to be assigned as author in WP database - ALL posts will have the SAME AUTHOR in wp database.
Ignore the links in the links table - they will not be moved.
I will provide all access needed to complete the task including ftp and phpmyadmin.
I will work with you to setup the empty WordPress site, or you can do it elsewhere - in which case you will install the new WordPress site at [url removed, login to view]
I AM OPEN TO ANY ADJUSTMENTS TO THESE SPECS WHICH WILL MAKE THIS MIGRATION EASIER!
