Hello experts,
This is probably easy peazy for some of you, but I busted the brain trust.
I have one field that needs to be broken into 3 columns in a query.
The cell contains data formatted as thus;
HD_Data
[Category (class)]
VMAC > WMS > Package - Small Package (UPS/FEDEX/Custom)
VMAC > WMS > ePMU
VMAC > WMS > ePMU
VMAC > WMS

VMAC > Inventory
VMAC > EDI
VMAC > Inventory > Paper - Inventory / Purchasing / Receiving / Usage
VMAC > Inventory > Ink Inventory / Purchasing / Receiving / Usage
VMAC > Finance > General Ledger
VMAC > Finance > Account Payable
VMAC
Need to have it look like this, 3 fields, containing the part or the blanks
HD_Data
[Assigned to - Group]      [Function]    [Issue]
VMAC      WMS      Package - Small Package (UPS/FEDEX/Custom)
VMAC      WMS      ePMU
VMAC      WMS      ePMU
VMAC      WMS      WMS
            
VMAC      Inventory      
VMAC      EDI      
VMAC      Inventory      Paper - Inventory / Purchasing / Receiving / Usage
VMAC      Inventory      Ink Inventory / Purchasing / Receiving / Usage
VMAC      Finance      General Ledger
VMAC      Finance      Account Payable
