Sorry; I cannot help you directly.

My rule of thumb is that if formulas are getting too complex to
understand/recall clearly, it's time to use a proper programming
language instead.  The nice thing about org is you can have tables as
inputs to and outputs of src blocks...

My papers often have awk source blocks that process tables to generate
statistics for some (numerical) experiments.

Spreadsheets, org tables being an example of such, are brilliant tools
for simple calculations but are pretty much "write only programming
