Bob -- please use the tutorial newsgroup for issues with the tutorial.

It would help if you provided more information about what part of the
tutorial, what "session", and more.

The index in question is only using two fields, so I am not sure why you
think something is missing. The tutorial was altered as I felt needed,
and whatever the fourth field was, was not needed. Please follow the
tutorial as it is written.

And again, please use the tutorial newsgroup ...
