1) If the ESN field is null, then return "Accessories", otherwise return "Phone".

2) Manufacture a datetime string in the format: DD-MM-YYYY (or could be MM-DD-YYYY depending on the original format) setting DD as 5th and 6th characters, MM as 7th and 8th characters, and YYYY as the 1st 4 characters from the "Receive Date" column.

3) If the ESN field is null, then return the first part of the SKU field up to the space, otherwise return the whole field.
