> I’m reading a table into a script.  The table includes two sets in the values fields.  When executing the script, I’m getting the error message ”Did not find requested field service in input data file model2.log”

> The table key consists of two addresses, node_A and node_B.
> My value inputs consist of two sets, which can consist of just a single value; all fields are separated by tabs.  The first two lines  of my input file are:
> #fields  node_A                                node_B                                layer_3_4            service
> xxx.yyy.zzz.30   xxx.yyy.255.255                udp        dns
> xxx.yyy.zzz are valid IP address values.
> It appears that the strings ‘udp’ and ‘dns’ are both being read as part of the layer_3_4 set.  Since they are separated by a tab instead of ‘|’, they should be interpreted as separate fields.
