How can I mvexpand field of the events from summary index?

New Member

Before adding results into summary index, I can mvexpand a multi-value field as expected; for checking mvexpand search example,

...  |table reason a |stats values(a) as a_list by reason |table reason a_list |collect index=test_index | mvexpand a_list |table  reason a_list | ...

By stats, a_list has multi-value. The first table reason a and the last table reason a_list, though the field names are different (a va a_list), as a whole, the number of results and values are the same as expected.

But, when I tried to mvexpand to the results in the summary index,

index=test_index | table reason a_list |mvexpand a_list 

there is no error message, but it can not expand multi-value field.

Questions: Is there any restrictions for mvexpand to be used for events in summary index?
How can I work around this problem?
