Splunk Search

How to search CSV data to filter out events with null values in ColumnA, then only return events where values in ColumnB are found in ColumnA?

Hello All,

I have CSV data and it consists of 3 columns “Name”, “Number” and “Data”.

We need to filter out data based on the “Number” column first, and then check if the “Data” column has values which are there in the “Name” column for that particular value of “Number“ column.

Ex.

Name       Number      Data
Dragonfruit  4      Chocolate
Honey          4     
Chocolate      4          Kiwi
Icecream        4    
Custardapple    4         Error
Apple          4     

and we need to first remove Data=Null
Final Output should be like this.

Name    Number  Data

Chocolate   4   Kiwi

Custardapple    4   Error

May I know how we can achieve this in a search?

Thanks
Gajanan Hiroji

Hello Thanks for the reply but how do you match Data column values with Name Column values with respect to particular number?
