Splunk Search

How to write a search to count variations (different order and number) of transaction events?


I need a search to count variations of event occurance. Lets say we have events:
A,B,C,D,E which are combined into transaction by sessionid.
Event A is a start
Event E is an end.

In time, I have to search for transactions which have a different order and number of middle steps:
and so on...

I need a stats count how many all of variations have occurred... I cannot predict all of the possible variations as steps are repeating between start and stop.

I need a table:
ABCDE - 10
ABBE - 3

Any useful searches/commands I can try?
