Yet another question related to tab delimited input files.

I would like to import a tab delimited text file, where the first line of the file contains field names instead of field values.

Have you looked at the props.conf settings for CSV/TSV files? These include, but are not limited to;

[your_sourcetype]
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = false
INDEXED_EXTRACTIONS = TSV
HEADER_FIELD_LINE_NUMBER = 1
FIELD_QUOTE = "
TIMESTAMP_FIELDS = your_timestamp_field(s)

Read more in the props.conf spec file.

Hope this helps,
