Undefined Index ... how so?

Hi Experts,

I have the following code:
    $alt = 1;
    foreach ($payees as $payee):
                <td class="alt<?php echo $alt; ?>">
                    <a href="index.php?action=details&id=<?php echo $payee['id']?>">
                        <?php echo $payee['lName'] . ', ' . $payee['fName']; ?>
                    </a>   <?php    print_r($payee);?>
        $alt = $alt * (-1);

Open in new window

This gives me the following error/output
Notice: Undefined index: lName in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\CSS_Reservations\addedit\payees\view_list.php on line 27

Notice: Undefined index: fName in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\CSS_Reservations\addedit\payees\view_list.php on line 27
, Array ( [id] => 358 [0] => 358 [fname] => Guadalupe [1] => Guadalupe [lname] => Arce [2] => Arce [archived] => 0 [3] => 0 ) 

Open in new window

Its saying that my lname is  undefined, where my print_r gives Arce as tha lname value?

I'm sure its something silly.
