That's not a Python dict. It looks like some sort of table structure. How 
do you get this? (What menu command do you run, what buttons to you 
click, etc?) I'm guessing you are using an IDE ("Integrated Development 
Environment") like Anaconda or similar. Is that right?

Python dicts print something like this:

{'FEq_(0,_0,_4,_1)': 9999, 'FEq_(0,_0,_3,_0)': 9999}

If you run 

print(varsdict)

what does it show?






(I have limited time to respond at the moment, so apologies for the brief 
answers. Hopefully someone else will step in with some help too.)
