Splunk Search

After creating field extractions using the field extractor in Splunk Web, why are none of the fields returned in search results?

Hi,

First time trying this. I have the below data. Using the | character as a delimiter, then going thru the field extractor GUI, it extracts 5 fields. So far so good. Then I rename 3 of the fields to a more descriptive name. Then it asks me to save it which I do, then there is an option to do a search with the fields I've just defined. I click on it and it shows a search, but none of the fields I just defined are there. Very strange. What am I missing?

found a way to get this to work..... Cleared out all the events and recreated new ones. Then the field extractor worked....better, not perfect but much better than before
