Help With Event Cleanup - Remove "-"

I am having a problem with what i believe is writing a regex to clean up some events before i report on them in dashboard.  I am pulling specific security events from windows and each event should return a username and a domain.  I am getting those results, but with each, it is also returning a second data item "-".  That is throwing things off/making it look ugly and i havent had much luck ripping it out.  Hoping someone can assist and possibly explain what the solution is doing?  I tried to do an eval replace for the field where "-" is replaced with "" but then none of my events showed up so clearly that was wrong.  A sample event looks like this to help clarify what i am getting:

I basically need to drop the first line from both the "Account" and also "Account_Domain" so that i would only get service. and PF as values.

 

As always, help is greatly appreciated.

So the mvindex basically says for that field, choose in this case, the 2nd value for the field as the only value for that field?

yes, considering second value.

Account_Name and Account_Domain fields are multi value fields  and fields index start from 0 means 1st value. in our case we needed to consider second value so it would be index 1. hope its clear.
