Detailed Description

Exception to be thrown on a failure to retrieve a column specified either by name or index number.

When a Table object is created, the header is read and a column object created for each column defined. Thus id this exception is thrown the column requested does not exist in the HDU (note that the column can easily exist and not contain any data since the user controls whether the column will be read when the FITS object is instantiated).

It is expected that the index number calls will be primarily internal. The underlying implementation makes lookup by name more efficient.

The exception has two variants, which take either an integer or a string as parameter. These are used according to the accessor that threw them, either by name or index.
