I want to replace the character '&' with the character ',' in the below field.

field = {call DB2GIPS.GIP_IP_SMRY_BROWSE(?& ?& ?& ?& ?& ?)},4,145.20738080143929,65.47478818893433,360.34633181989193,580.8295232057571,,2.2596316800361542E-4,,0.0

so that the result should be

field = {call DB2GIPS.GIP_IP_SMRY_BROWSE(?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?)},4,145.20738080143929,65.47478818893433,360.34633181989193,580.8295232057571,,2.2596316800361542E-4,,0.0

How can that be done in splunk?Please advice.

Easily:

rex mode=sed "s/&/,/g"

Does that work for you?

you also should specify the field name you want to rex or it might mangle up the rest of the raw data as well..
so rex field=myfieldname mode=sed "s/&/,/g"
