Challenge #81: Multi-Level Bill of Materials Problem

Highlighted

Legit doesn't make sense to me. For some reasons levels 1-3 solved right away and with a single join. Woulda thought it would only solve levels 1-2 and then I would iterate through. Whatever.

Here is my solution !

I built the iterative macro as a build-a-long (I needed the practice to see how they worked), so I went ahead and did a non-macro solution.

This brought back memories of when I worked for a major motor manufacturer and I had to build a solution to accurately cost movements in the BOM!!!

Super inefficient but gets to the right answer. I should have built a macro.

Personally I consider this challenge to be one of the most difficult intermediate challenges in the community. I'm really happy I solved it without using an iterative macro and kept the tool count relatively low 😄
