Hi Wanted to subract the subquery results from main query. i.e

index=main source=/folder/abc.csv  |table customername - [index=main source=/folder/xxx.csv |table name ] 

can this be achievable ? i want to get only the names which are not common from both the files.

Thanks

index=main source=/folder/abc.csv OR source=/folder/xxx.csv
| eval name=coalesce(name,customername)  
| eventstats dc(source) as flag by name
| where flag=1 AND source="/folder/abc.csv"
| table name   

Hi, how about this?

You gotta do it outside of the subsearch like such.

search abc.csv |table name  [search xxx.csv |table name ]
| eval new_field=name_one-name_two
