Splunk Search

is there a way to escape source when log contains source field ?

Explorer

Hey Splunk Experts,

I have a log that produce something like below; (Notice there is a key named source[not the splunk source])

timestamp source=graph name=standard
...

When I table the above log ; | table source name ; It shows source as in the log file path.

source              name
/opt/app/abc.log    standard

Is there a way to escape that so it shows value in log file - like below? Thank you!

source   name   
graph   standard
