Hi,
I have 3 data sources and all have different time and date formats.

Field1
2019-06-07 17:05:28.513
Field2
Tue, 06 Aug 2019 19:17:24 +0000
Field3
20190718140413.500000-240

I would like to have them all converted to mm/dd/yyyy hour minutes
Field1
06/07/2019 17:05
Field2
08/06/2019 19:47
Field3
07/18/2019 14:04

Thank you
Alan

strptime and strftime are your friends for this problem.

| eval Date1=strftime(strptime(Field1, "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M"),"%m/%d/%Y %H:%M"), Date2=strftime(strptime(Field2, "%a, %d %b %Y %H:%M"),"%m/%d/%Y %H:%M"), Date3=strftime(strptime(Field3,"%Y%m%d%H%M"),"%m/%d/%Y %H:%M")

Do you want to do this at index time or search time?
To be clear, are these 3 data sources separate sourcetypes?
