As always more tools than needed, but the solution looks to be correct and the extra tools help me reduce data clutter as I go (:

Merry Christmas!

To show our support for the selected charity, the Alteryx Community team took an afternoon to volunteer on site.

I put a lot of effort into dynamically parsing downloaded data, but the download took so long that in the end I just used the xls and text files.  I did create a batch macro to dynamically figure out how many delimited columns to parse, but I ended up not using it in my final solution. Learned a lot doing that though!
