I agree, I believe the expected response is incorrect.  No spaces between letters and it provides "/" rather than ".-.-.-" for the period.

As I looked through other answers and talked to @DultonM about something unrelated to this challenge, I realized that I completely over complicated my solution in my rush to get it done.

I use the Find Replace tool all the time, but I'm usually just using it to append data. I completely didn't realize that you could replace multiple items when using it for replacing. That little fun fact makes my solution much simpler:

@DataRangler, sorry for the delayed response. We are all flying home from our conference today. Good catch - I mistakenly uploaded the wrong file in the heat of our live session. It's been updated to have the latest version.

🙂 nice way to spend the time in the airport, waiting for the outbound flight.

Super over-complicated compared to some of the solutions posted above

 

Spoiler
Did this in the 3 phases posted in the problem.     After looking at the other solutions I could have done this MUCH easier by using the power of the replace tool; and the ability for Text to Columns to ignore blank results.

This was kind of cool to take a reference from the web and then utilize it when decoding data.

Not entirely sure if posting here is kosher, having had a big hand in designing this, but here's my solution 🙂
