Hi, Linda --

The nvdbimport command requires that the fields already be defined.  Instead of 
editing ovw_fields, though, you should create a separate file under 
/usr/OV/fields/C, so that your modifications are clearly identifiable and to 
make future migration or updates easier.

I noticed that you left a space after the comma in " CircuitID" after the 
comma.  The nvdbimport command will try to update the field " CircuitID" 
instead of "CircuitID". 

The commas in your Selection names would be interpreted as field delimiters.  
I'm not sure if there's some sort of a workaround for that.  Someone else may 
be able to answer that.
