Manual Pivot of 400 unique items
I have a set raw set of data that is divided into 4 categories (i'll call it level a), and further divided into 400 (level b) more categories, each of which has a cost. Each item can repeat itself over an over, and the same item can belong to multiple categories of level a (but not level b)
example set of data
A B Cost
1 x $5
1 y $1
3 z $7
3 z $7
1 z $7
1 x $4.50
I need to pull out the top 10 of each category with the minimal amount of rows and columns, as this will be referenced by other sheets and needs to be as light as possible to support large amounts of data. In other words a basic pivot function.

Got it. Helper with sumifs, then large(distinct(collect())) and a couple index matches thrown on for good measure.
