I have 60 more records than the end result, but the numbers look the same at the beginning of the file. I checked the official solution file and it has a year filter that removes several hundred rows that I don't see in the original challenge spec, but up to that we more or less had the same logic...

7 - Meteor

@NicoleJohnson's solution really gave me the proper insights to solve this solution with the help of Regex code effectively. I really had a hard time solving this one, because I picked advanced exercise "knowingly", even though I am just a beginner,  but I learned some new tools today, thanks for the solution @NicoleJohnson
