Splunk Search

Search results include fields with no values, can this be done?

Is it possible to get search results in a table when only some of the results will have all the fields associated with them?

Currently I cannot get this to work.

For example....

DateTimeUserURLTermProduct
15/05/201310:01:02User123456/Home/--
15/05/201310:01:32User123456/Products/--
15/05/201310:01:53User123456/Products/Product1/-ID12345678
15/05/201310:02:42User123456/Search/--
15/05/201310:03:12User123456/Search/Results/Car-

I usually use eval to handle these. Something like:

...my search params... | eval TermProduct=if(isnull(TermProduct),"None",TermProduct) | ...other search params...

then adjust your search to account for "None" (or whatever you want to eval it to) in that field.

You need fillnull before your stats command, not after.

If in my search query I use the below...

stats count by Date Time User URL Term | Fields Date Time User URL Term | fillnull value="-" Term

This will only return the last result on the above table. The previous 4 results do not have the field "Term" associated with them, however I would like these to populate with a blank if that is the case.
