table( ) Query Function

Represent the data as a table. Specify a list of fields to select. Columns in the table are sorted in the specified field order. This is an aggregate function and it will limit the number of events returned using the limit parameter. It is possible to specify how the table is sorted using the field parameter. (See select() function for similar tabular output, that does not limit the number of events returned and does not sort the result and is thus better suited for exporting large mount of data to a file)
