I'm trying to plot some data using loops, but i've some issues when I try to extract the column header and have it as a sub legend. Does anyone have any idea to fix it up ?

\documentclass{minimal}

\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{pgfplots}
\usepgfplotslibrary{groupplots}
\usepackage{pgfplotstable}
\definecolor{skyblue1}{rgb}{0.447,0.624,0.812}


\pgfplotstableread{

             \addplot[very thick,smooth,skyblue1] table [ x index=0,  y index=#1] {\modelresponses};
    }
    \end{groupplot}
  \end{tikzpicture}

  • Just to make your example compilable, replace the group title key with title=$\mycolname$.

The underscores require the math mode. Hence a quick fix is to put the title variable between dollar signs i.e. replacing the respective line with

\nextgroupplot[title=$\mycolname$,grid=major];

However, just for the sake of curiosity it would be nice if someone can find a way to pass the title names including math characters like \pi,\psi without expanding (as I suspect it is the problem).
