 The general solution for a Calc formula is e. g. with subvec as I

 and in a similar sense as I described for subscr in the subsection
 Dynamic variation of ranges here:
 http://orgmode.org/worg/org-hacks.html#field-coordinates-in-formulas

 The general solution for a Lisp formula is e. g. with calc-subvector I
 guess.

 The following simpler solution is only possible when the range is
 relative to the field where the formula is evaluated in and when the
 offset to the range border is static:

 |---+-|
 | a | abc |
 | b | bcd |
 | c | cde |
 | d | |
 | e | |
 |---+-|
 #+TBLFM: @$2..@$2 = '(concat @0$1..@+2$1)

 With a remote table you can not use the simple solution.

As mentioned in my emails a while ago, @ still evaluates to the number of
rows in the current table (from where the reference is being made) instead
of the number of rows in the remote table being referenced.

I can not reproduce with release_7.8.02-13-g0c09a.dirty:

| Amount |

#+TBLFM: @2$1=remote(xyz,@$1)

Maybe check your Org mode installation upgrade, make etc. Search for
M-x locate-library RET org for more information.

Turns out it was indeed the issue.
I was working on one of the machines where I still had an older version of
org.

[O] Using last row in remote table references

2012-01-11 Thread Phil (Philip) Mason
Hello all,

Should I be able to use @ in references to remote tables? 

For example in the tables below I would expect the results table to show cde 
as the result of both formulas. 

#+TBLNAME: TEST1
|---+---|
| a | f |
| b | g |
| c | h |
| d | i |
| e | j |
|---+---|
 
#+TBLNAME: RESULTS
|--|
| Formula test |
|--|
| cde  |
| abc  |
|--|
#+TBLFM: @2$1='(concat remote(TEST1, @3$1..@5$1))::@3$1='(concat remote(TEST1, 
@3$1..@$1))

Is there a syntax I should be using if I want to get all the entries in a table 
below a certain row without explicitly entering the number of the last row?

Thanks in advance

Phil Mason
