Revise Excel macro to include missing information

The attached file contains two worksheets.
A script parses the information in worksheet "Original" into the information in worksheet "Results"

There are 2 requests:
1. Worksheet "Original" contains price information in column F and in column B. Example in cells B70 to B87 (and other cells below) shows price information that is incorrectly parsed to Column F in worksheets "Results".
The requirement is for the script to be amended so that all price information in column F and B, of the Original worksheet, is parsed to Column F in Results worksheet.

2. Worksheet "Original" contains the word with colon "Category:"  as part of the information in column E.
The requirement is to have this word with colon "Category:" deleted from the worksheet "Results".

Thanks,
Greg

Thanks. Great job.

There'a another small request. I overlooked that "Land Size:" (Original column G) is also not deleted from the Results (column J).

Can you make this amendment as well?

Thanks,

Greg
