How to setup summary index using existing date field in data

Explorer

Hi -

I have saved search returning events from past one year as below

ReadDate Count
20161101 500
20161102 550
.
.
.
.
20161228 800
20161229 900
.

and i have populated this data in to summary index however all this data is indexed with current data instead i want all this data to be indexed based on the ReadDate field. Hence tried setting up _time to ReadDate but results are not successful. Any suggestions how to achieve this please?

Thanks in Advance.
