Hi

I have a very wierd requirement to transform the result of my search

**EMPLOYEE, BOSS**
ERIC, CHRIS
CHRIS, MACK
MACK, VAL
VAL, WILL

Into this:

**EMPLOYEE, BOSS, BOSS2, BOSS3, BOSS4**
ERIC, CHRIS, MACK, VAL, WILL
CHRIS, MACK, VAL, WILL
MACK, VAL, WILL
VAL, WILL
WIll

I know its a bit wierd and its normal to have missing.
Any ideas?
