1) See another current thread in this list:  [Cucumber] Tables
2) [new|expired] does not matter, so you don't need the column at all
   you can put two checks in the step definition, I think.
   perhaps this allows you to write the remaining steps in another way,
   without duplication of steps. 

How can I change the world if I can't even change myself?
