How to increment counter field with a by clause

Explorer

Given events

Group MultiValue

A 7,2,9

B 8,1

I'm using makemv to pivot the results to below, but I also want a new Index/Counter field which counts (or shows the index value) and resets when it sees a new group. The accum command doesn't support a "by [field list]" so curious how to do this?

Group Value **Index/Counter**


A 7 1

A 2 2

A 9 3

B 8 1

B 1 2

Or just | stats count as index by Group should work I assume.
