Welcome to the world of data driven programming.

Its seductive but brings its own set of challenges.
Structuring the data and how you format it visually
makes a huge difference to your ability to debug.

I don't know why your code gives the error it does
but a few intermediate print statements might help
pinpoint what's happening.

It could be as simple as a missing comma or bracket/brace
somewhere, but you need to be sure the layout it consistent
to spot these kinds of bugs.
