stringCol("C", "Macoun", "Opal", "Navel", "Cara Cara ", "Greengage", "Mirabelle"),
intCol("D", 1, 2, 12, 3, 2, 3),

The following example moves columns B and C to the second position (1st index) and third position in the new table.

source = newTable(

stringCol("C", "Macoun", "Opal", "Navel", "Cara Cara ", "Greengage", "Mirabelle"),
