Adding column to timechart table.

I wanted to add my converted Time to a timechart, but don't know how.

|convert ctime(_time) AS Time
|eval Time=strftime(_time, "%m/%d/%Y %H:%M:%S")
|timechart distinct_count(Stuff)

This will give me a table with the default _time value and I wanted to add Time to the timechart and remove the default _time column - is there any way to do this?

Thank you in advance.

Yes. You need to move the eval to after the timechart.

|timechart distinct_count(Stuff)
|eval Time=strftime(_time, "%m/%d/%Y %H:%M:%S")

but this will leave you with both _time and Time and in my case Time was at the wrong end of the table so I added the following.

| fields - _time | table Time *
