You can use a latex code block (however you must enable support for
evaluating latex code blocks).  See the attached example.


#+Options: toc:nil

* Example

Here is a table.

#+Caption: I am the table.
#+name: a-table
| 1 |
| 2 |
| 3 |
| 4 |

#+begin_src latex :var foo=a-table[0,0]
The first value of this table is foo.
#+end_src
