Assuming this is related to you other question, the EventData_Xml field is already extracted and looks like <Data>...text...</Data>, right?

So you want to get the part from between the Data tags?

| rex field=EventData_Xml "\<Data\>(?<EventData_Data>[^\<]+)\<\/Data\>"

That doesn't look like valid XML, are you sure the tags occur in that order? I would expect the </Data> to come behind the </EventData>.
