I didn't even notice that :-)

Well - that makes it even clearer ..... here's your second code 
fragment, with the reversal "un-reversed".

  put field "f1" into tKeys -- the a,b \r c,d data    (reversal restored)
  put field "f2" into tData -- the 1,2 \r 1,3 data
  split tData with return
(and already there is a problem - tData has a single entry tData[1] = 3 )
  put 1 into i
  repeat for each line x in tKeys
    put tData[i] into myArray[x]
    add 1 to i
  end repeat
-- and to prove it happened
  combine myArray with return and "#"
  put myArray into field "f2"

puts them back in an array.
