I have a table like this (there are other fields between first and last field):
First AB BA CA BA C Second BA AB CD Last CF BA BA CF
as you can see in some rows (first and last) values for Var2 have some duplicates (e.g. in first row value BA is duplicated, and also in last one CF is the same) I want to remove the second duplicate values in each row for second column(Var2) and also remove c from first row to be like this at the end:
First AB BA CA Second BA AB CD Last CF BA
can you please help me and tell me how can I do that?
I need a general way that works for lot's of rows (checking around 256 rows to find duplicates and remove them)
Thank you so much!
What is the condition under which you should remove C?
To answer your question, i considered a condition that length of the value should be greater than 1.
Your Base Search.. | stats values(VarN) as VarN by Var1 | eval VarN = mvfilter(len(VarN)>1)
values(VarN) gives you the distinct values. mvfilter can be used to filter the values of a multivalue field.
Those other columns will they contain single value or they also contain multiple values?
Assuming they contain single values
Your Base Search.. | stats first(Var2) as Var2, first(Var3) as Var3, values(VarN) as VarN by Var1 | eval VarN = mvfilter(len(VarN)>1)
what if I want to add another columns? because in this case I have another parameters which I wanted to add beside Var1 and Varn (like Var2,...) is there any way to use table for this purpose? not list?
