jet_engine is on a distinguished road

This is my sampleDict:

interpolationScheme cellPoint;

setFormat           raw;

fields              ( UMean );

        type    array;
        axis    xyz;
            e1      (1 0 0);
            e2      (0 1 0);
            origin  ( -0.6 0 0 );
        pointsDensity   (100 100 0);
        spanBox         (0.6 0 0);

I try to run it by:
sampleDict -dict system/sampleDict -latestTime
But it gives me the following error:
keyword origin is undefined in dictionary "case/system/sampleDict.sets"

file: case/system/sampleDict.sets from line 30 to line 39.

    From function const Foam::entry& Foam::dictionary::lookupEntry(const Foam::word&, bool, bool) const
    in file db/dictionary/dictionary.C at line 439.

FOAM exiting
I've tried:
  • Adding origin out of the function as well
  • Changing xyz to y, to x, to xy, ...

But the error is still the same, and ORIGIN is there! Does anyone know why it does not work?
