My use of the term "header" might be non-standard.

for Table B and

> ColumnB ColumnA

for Table C are what I was referring to as "headers". The table header, among other things, associates a Column name with a column position. The rows containing the data only have data values, one after the other. The position of a value in a row and the position of the corresponding column name in the header together, establish the linkage between the value and the name.
