I am using the following to clean up output:

rex mode=sed field=search_google2 "s/\%20/ /g";"s/\%5B/[/g" | rex mode=sed field=search_google2 "s/\%22/\"/g" | rex mode=sed field=search_google2 "s/\%5B/[/g" | rex mode=sed field=search_google2 "s/\%5D/]/g" | rex mode=sed field=search_google2 "s/\%2B/+/g" | rex mode=sed field=search_google2 "s/\%2C/,/g" | rex mode=sed field=search_google2 "s/\%3A/:/g" | rex mode=sed field=search_google2 "s/\%27/'/g" | rex mode=sed field=search_google2 "s/\%40/@/g" | rex mode=sed field=search_google2 "s/\%3B/;/g" | rex mode=sed field=search_google2 "s/\%25/%/g"

I am new to regex.... can I combine the regex into one statement instead of the multiple pipes?

Well, sed supports the y command (character substitution), but since there is not a 1-to-1 mapping, I don't think you can apply that here.

However, you can put all of your regexes into props.conf SEDCMD statements, or through transforms, which would make the alteration permanent (may not be compatible with any requirements of keeping data in its original format, if you have such).

Hope this helps,
