You might want to see if the readascii function will work for you.
You have to first load it:

   isis> .load readascii
   isis> help readascii

Do you want isis to read just the rows that contain two columns, or do
you want isis to read all the rows and substitute a default value for
the second column?

In any case, if you provide the files I am sure that we can come up
with a way to read the file.
