Had to really dig around for this.
Learned something new, thanks Steve

There were some missing pieces to the puzzle that made it more interesting. I was forced to question if the key was supposed to be there and if the SaleValue referred to in the question as the "last column" was supposed to be "Sales" or was a mistake. When I really thought it through, it was clear, consistent and unambiguous. Thanks, Steve, for a good question to wake up my brain this morning.

Had to flip a coin between first and second answer. The question just asks for what will decrypt the field - the first one does do this, it just returns the values in a slightly less usable format.

Good question, Steve. It made me do some research, since I haven't used encryption yet professionally. I did notice a few minor errors: the field name should have been Sales, not SalesValue, and the third and fourth options appear to be missing a comma, so they probably wouldn't pass the parser, even if there was a function by that name. However, these are minor quibbles that don't really detract from a good question. Thanks! :-)

+1 Enjoyed the question. Don't use encryption currently, so nice to learn something new.

Please don't go. The drones need you. They look up to you.
