Trying to achieve the below:
eval x=mvzip(Title,Serial,beginTime,language,a1,a2,b1,b2)

How can I achieve this?
Thank you.

Try like this

Your base search | eval x=mvzip(Title,mvzip(Serial,mvzip(beginTime,mvzip(language,mvzip(a1,mvzip(a2,mvzip(b1,b2)))))))

Hi Leonheart78,

You can find some good answers here.

Potentially, a foreach loop could be used. For example

| noop | stats count as a | eval a=mvrange(1,3) | eval b=mvrange(3,6) | eval c=mvrange(6,8) | foreach a b c [ mvexpand <<FIELD>> ] | eval x="" 
 | foreach a b c [ eval x=mvzip(x, '<<FIELD>>') ] | rex mode=sed field=x "s/^,//"

    a   b   c   x
    1   3   6   1,3,6
    1   3   7   1,3,7
    1   4   6   1,4,6
    ...

The rex command strips the initial null x field value out again. Hope that helps.

This works like a charm. Thanks.
