Classic AoC-style challenge

 

Spoiler
The only change for part 2 was the stopping criteria for the iterative macro.

Lots of time on P1 setting up the problem but no bugs. P2 worked with slight modification to macro

 

Spoiler
P1: Map out direction instructions via generate rows and hard-coded text inputs; Also use generate rows to create a grid around the key points for infinite spaces. I macro had rules on directions to go vs stay

P2: Just expand directions and crank up iteration number to end when values in vs out match

Spoiler
