substitute a value in results

Explorer

In windows events on a lot of cases you get a result code from them in hex notation, then you have to look them up and see what each hex means. Is there any way to change the hex to a meaningful expression by substituting the hex code with its meaning? Preferably at search time.

Yes, you can use a lookup table for this. Some work has been done in this area already by ftk, and packaged into an app. Could http://splunkbase.splunk.com/apps/All/4.x/Add-On/app:Windows+Event+Codes+Lookup help you?
