A solution by a newbie. Output on target. What more could I want? Well, since you asked, it'd be great to solve these in what I consider an efficient time period. Maybe next time. Still had fun though.

9 Union tools, new record for me;)  Fun exercise.

Very interesting used normal workflow to get the end result. But we would have created a batch macro and with an analytical application which will be more challenging and fun.

Another good reshaping challenge! I always have my production hat on, so I tried to make this as dynamic as possible (it will calculate the difference between the last/first available month in the dataset and it could handle new PLUs).

 

I feel like I haven't developed an elegant way to handle crosstab column names that contain special characters (e.g. %), because non-word characters get converted to underscores. In this case, you know that the underscore is always a % (so you could just use dynamic rename and replace "_" with "%").
