I have tried this with no avail:

| rex field=.* "(?<f01>[^\|].*)\|(?<f02>.*)\|" |table f01, f02

Appreciate the help.

Thank you for the input. But I seem to have no luck with it. I still get blanks in the result set.
Will the field=.* return all the data to the end of the line so the rest of the rule can break it down?
I see data in the "events" (299,102 rows). One row from the events:
RENC |OROB531K| | 0|2017-01-05-02.05.47.000000|2017-01-05-02.05.54.000000|17761|17761| 0| 7| 0:00.46|24H00|24H00| 1|LROP D/B RESTORE |2017-01-04-02.04.57.000000| |0001-01-01| | 0| | -| -| -|
