    This may need to be a manual process unless you (hopefully) have a slight typo on the last entry where the amount comes after the hyphen as opposed to before the hyphen as it is in the other entries.

    If it is not a typo, will that only ever happen when the last bit is "DIR DEP"?

    Basically... We need to find some kind of logic that is the same across every entry of similar type (such as POS vs Dir Dep) or across every entry regardless of type (this would be ideal).
