a table field ISN'T a single field, its a field bundled with an extra "editing" field that pops up as an overlay. I figured there had to be a way to pass the cell data back to the field proper, and poked around till I found out that the transfer mechanism is the name of the overlay field. I was worried that it was a property and that I'd have to dig around much deeper to find it, but turns out it was much more straight forward than I expected.
