I copied the LaTeX radio table (section A.6.2) from the manual into a

Is there a bug or what am I missing in the manual?

You need to turn on orgtbl-mode as a minor mode:

M-x orgtbl-mode

But putting the example in an org document misses the point I think: the
idea is that you have a *LaTeX document* (not an org one), but you want
to be able to create a table using org syntax and to then automatically
create the LaTeX table from the org table. So you add the code into your
LaTeX document, turn on orgtbl-mode as a minor mode and then press C-c
C-c on the ORGTBL: SEND line which turns the org table into a LaTeX
table and inserts it at the spot specified with the BEGIN/END RECEIVE
ORGTBL stufff.


Thanks. I obviously forgot the procedure. I used org mode for the entire file. When it came time to use the radio tables I would M-x tex-mode and then M-x orgtbl-mode and proceeded from there.
