I started out doing this a particularly dumb way that was in no way/shape/form flexible/dynamic/repeatable... and then suddenly I remembered A Particularly Problematic Parsing Example use case and realized I could borrow from that use case to use Regex pattern building (i.e. counting the dashes in the header lines to determine the number of characters in each field) as a way to find the pattern for splitting up the fields.
I love it when I build something and then answer my own question on Community 3 years later... 🙂
In the end, this one ended up being particularly fun!
The trick was figuring out that the column sizes are related to the number of dashes in the dash rows. Used a macro just to keep the reused sections of the flow tidy and to prove it is a dynamic workflow.
