Excel - Multiple rows to multiple columns based on one reference

Hi All,

I'm trying to tidy up a excel document  Sample.xlsx so that the rows under the column _category, are all in their own column rather than row.  There are a different number of rows for each product. Example of how it should look below.

I've tried vlookups and generally been scratching my head for an hour but can't figure out how to do it.

So it should look like:  

Products1 | simple | Products/Nozzles | Products/Nozzles/Manual | Brands/Quality |

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
