How to combine multiple searches and output results into one CSV file?

Here is example query..

index=A host=host1 | stats count by host 
| index=B sourcetype=s1 | dedup host | table host 
| index=C sourcetype=s2 | dedup host | table host 
| outputcsv output_file_name

Individually, these queries work, but in a perfect world I'd like to run the queries as one to produce the outputs into one single CSV. Possible? Running the searches separately and appending to same CSV file is fine also.

how about using append

index=A host=host1 | stats count by host 
|append [ search  index=B sourcetype=s1 | dedup host | table host ]
|append [ search  index=C sourcetype=s2 | dedup host | table host ]
| outputcsv output_file_name

For details on append see here

Try these

(index=A host=host1) OR (index=B sourcetype=s1) OR (index=C sourcetype=s2)
| stats count by host | outputcsv output_file_name

If you don't want count field for index=B and index=C, try this

(index=A host=host1) OR (index=B sourcetype=s1) OR (index=C sourcetype=s2)
| stats count by host | eval count=if(host="host1",count,null())| outputcsv output_file_name

Thank you for the suggestion, you are correct with your 2nd suggestion I didn't want to count them and I find the append command easier to work with. Thanks again, totally forgot that OR will do it as well. Thanks again!
