Splunk Search

Can't return subsearch results

Explorer

Hello, splunk community.

I tried to exec subsearch command for adding search condition of "main" search.
Datas of target of subsearch have single field named nameOfFruit.
example below,

apple
orange
pineapple
... and so on

I wrote search command like this,

 index=main [search index=sub | return nameOfFruit]

but it didn't work yet.

How should i write?
or can't i do this?

note:

Of course, before i ask this question, I found related articles below.
but any answer of these question didn't work well.

Hi kml_uvce.

Thanks in advance for your reply.

I tried the command suggested in your answer.
but, it didn't work.

I confirmed the command below worked well.

index=sub | table nameOfFruit

However, the commands below didn't work well...
#empty result was returned.

index=main [search index=sub | table nameOfFruit]
[search index=sub | table nameOfFruit]

Thank you for your comment.

I tried your suggestion, then the command seemed to work well.
so... I might bark on the wrong tree.

Actually, This problem is just that result of main search command(including search condition of "sub" search result) return empty.

I'm sorry for trouble you.
