Hello everyone,

I'm having a bit of a problem with tables and references. I try to use
tables + spreadsheet capabilities for data entry while testing certain
things, and one table design that works conceptually for me is the

| Attempt | Start | End | Success | Wait in Min | |---------+------------------------+------------------------ +---------+-------------| | 1 | <2009-07-31 Fri 04:43> | <2009-07-31 Fri 04:44> | No | 1 | | 2 | <2009-07-31 Fri 04:45> | <2009-07-31 Fri 04:46> | No | 1 | | 3 | <2009-07-31 Fri 04:48> | <2009-07-31 Fri 04:49> | No | 1 | |---------+------------------------+------------------------ +---------+-------------| | Results | | | 0% | 1 | #+TBLFM: $5='(ba/org-time-diff-min $2 $3)::@5$4='(ba/find "Yes"|'(@address@hidden))::@5$5=vmean(@address@hidden);%.1f

The problem I'm having is when my cursor is at @4$1 and I'm pressing RET.
It creates a new row where I can enter new data, as expected.

It will increment the
  @5$5 part to @6$5

Now the problem is when I try to automate the formulas a bit.

If I would instead of
the following message will come up during evaluation:
 Row descriptor -1 used in line <line> crosses hline

Does anyone have any idea how I can make this work? The problem goes
away when I delete the horizontal line. If my table design is wrong or
there is a better way to do what I'm open to changing it.

The fact that relative references are not allowed to cross horizontal
separator lines is an old feature which I implemented fro some obscure
reason.  I think now is the tie to get rid of it, because it causes
more confusion than anything.

I have just pushed a change to this effect, thanks for bringing it up.
