Hi, this is sample query.

Can you please try the below.

Instead of using '' please use '

Path Finder

If you just need to change the column name, look at installing the Lookup Editor https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1724/. If the lookup is larger than 10 mb and you don't need the field names, I would just re-upload the lookup with the fields you want.

thank you - i can just upload the report as "user" - in settings/lookups - therefore not able to rename column during import (like when splunk is locally installed).
