I think your code mostly works, I downloaded it and just modified the regular expression to this:
# Expected formats # >>>A 430-08870 BKR PRINTING $ 1,090.00 $ 155.00 M 5 20 $ 1,035.5 +0 Mark Bengtzen 01/22/2020 (801) 532-5363<<< # >>>420-31784 GRAFIKSHOP CORP.

This works for all the rows (except headline) on
