# How to use underscores with pgfplotstable?

I have an input file like this:

``````some_entry 123
another_entry 456
yet_another_entry 789
``````

and I want to typeset it as a table with:

``````\pgfplotstabletypeset[col sep=space]{FILENAME}
``````

Problem is that LaTeX seems to interpret the underscores as a command to typeset subscript.

Escaping the underscores in the input file does not work.

`\begingroup\makeatletter\@makeother\_\pgfplotstabletypeset[col sep=space]{FILENAME}\endgroup` might work – egreg Apr 8 '12 at 16:09

``````\pgfplotstabletypeset[col sep=space,columns/colname1/.style={string type}]{FILENAME}
``````colname1 colname2
