This seems to be related to: https://emacs.stackexchange.com/questions/15185/cant-assign-to-hline-relative-reference

There seem to be restrictions regarding hline-relative-references within table-formulas.

If change 'I' and 'II' for 1 and 2 on the very left of the formula, it works (keeping the other hline-relative parts) . If I stay with the former I get the same error as you (emacs 26.1, orgmode 9.1.9, Debian stable).

I hope this can help,

I'm trying to create a table where the third column between two hlines is set by a formula referencing the second column.

Here is an example:

| a | b | c |
| row 1 | 12.00 | 144.00 |
| row 2 | | 23.00 |
| sum | 12.00 | 167.00 |
#+TBLFM: @I$3..II$3=if($2 != 0, 12*$2, $3);%.2f::@4$2=vsum(@I..II);%.2f::@4$3=vsum(@I..II);%.2f

When I try to calculate this table however, I get the error "Can’t assign to hline relative reference".

Why is this now allowed? This seems like a fairly mundane use of a table to me. It is explicitly disabled in the source, but without explanation, and searching the mailing list doesn't turn up many answers.

Is there a recommended way to handle a situation like this?

Could this feature be fixed?

Thank you,
