I have used "typeof" to know the Types for fields for the data set in splunk web version, but I get the Value column showing invalid in each one of its corresponding rows.

sourcetype = json | FieldsTypes

This macro definition of FieldsTypes is.... eval Ent_Code = typeof ('TableEntry.EventCode')

So @somesoni2 , im seeing the Ent_Code as invalid in "value" column after I click on "AllFields"
