Query for X account

index=x sourcetype=hw

I just want to prefix with the queries and table example, while very much appreciated, are confusing, as the second query states that it is for Y andZ but has index=x and that the table has index=y as false for is in y. So if i misunderstood what you needed, I'm sorry, and if you could clarify what you need, that'd be great. Otherwise, if this works for you, super awesome.
what about something like this:

(index=x OR index=y OR index=z) sourcetype=hw
|table index productId 
|dedup productId index
|eval is_in_y=if(index="x","false","true")
|table productId is_in_y index

thanks cmerriaman for pointing that. my bad, the correction for the second query is:

 index=y or index=z sourcetype=hw
 | table productId,index
 | dedup productId,index

so your suggestion doesn't work for this case because there is no index=x in Y or Z. the final goal for this is to count how many productIds are in Y and Z. for instance if X has 20 products i would like to know how many products are in Y or Z. if Y has 18 of 20 and Z has 15 of 20, i should go for Y.

if i am not very clear just let me know.
