Amen to that! But also thanks for pointing out those solutions - I
either missed them the first time around or I forgot about them -
probably the latter, but I cannot remember :-) : I took a look, was
entirely mystified, tried them out, and I think I understand the last
two (after spending some time with the formula debugger - and there
might be some documentation lacunae that need to be filled there), but
the first solution gives me errors and I have no idea what it is trying
to do or how it goes about it: Bernt (or somebody else - I'm not picky),
can you please provide an explanation? Does it still work? If so, how?


For reference: (See the link provided by Patrick for details on the others:

The problem (raised by Daniel Sinder) is to automatically
number the rows of a table and Bernt's first solution goes like this
(this is my attempt to replicate it, hence the errors - in the post,
the row numbers are correct):

* one

  | Row    | Data Column 1  | Data Column 2       |
  | #ERROR | some data      | more data           |
  | #ERROR | some more data | even more data      |
  | #ERROR | and more       | that's all          |
  | #ERROR | still more     | yup, you guessed it |
#+TBLFM: $1=find(@address@hidden,$2)
