Aha - that sounds exactly like what I want. My order_info table uses the
field named order_number as the key column. I just want IC to create the
record with data only in the key column  (all other columns empty). Is
this what I'd add to ...etc/log_transaction

[import table=order_info]
code: [value mv_order_number]

or would it be

[import table=order_info]
order_number: [value mv_order_number]

the table exists and appears in the IC admin area but the records don't
seem to be getting inserted.
