One cannot have more than one TIME_FORMAT setting for a sourcetype.  Sometimes, different time formats means different sourcetypes, but that's not always the case.

If you truly have multiple timestamp formats in the same source type then, first, slap the developer.  Ask the admin if timestamp formats are adjustable.  Finally, give up on TIME_FORMAT and let the datetime.xml file parse the times for you.  It's less than ideal, but probably the best you can do.

If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
