[Paraview] Field Data

Dear all,

I am having some trouble using Field Data with a vtu file, the file reads

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<VTKFile type="UnstructuredGrid" version="0.1" byte_order="LittleEndian">
<DataArray type="Float64"                                    
Name="time" format="ascii">
     1.00000E-08     1.00000E-08
<Piece NumberOfPoints="      1681" NumberOfCells="      1600">

However when I use the pvpython commands

VTUF = XMLUnstructuredGridReader( FileName=VTUFName )
print VTUF.GetFieldDataInformation().GetArray('time').GetRange()

the result is

(1.0000000000000001e+299, -1.0000000000000001e+299)

Additionally, if I load the file into the paraview app, switch to a  
spreadsheet view, and select field data, there is nothing there.

Is there something wrong with the format of my vtu file?
