Date: Thu, 29 Apr 2021 13:22:45 +0100 [thread overview] Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> (raw) Hello all, TL;DR: I have the need to reference a table that is in another file to pass as data to a src block in the current file. Is this possible? Hints welcome! Longer version: I am running a series of numerical experiments, each of which generates output files (using org syntax!). I want to process the data in those files for inclusion in a paper. Now, I could write a shell script which extracts all these data and collates them etc. but it would be ideal if I could simply refer to a table in another file directly. The tables are all named although a given table in each output file will have the same name (I hope that makes sense). One thing that comes to mind is some elisp in the argument to the :var header argument. Is this possible? I've not tried... Thank you, eric -- : Eric S Fraga via Emacs 28.0.50, Org release_9.4.5-381-g17ef1b.dirty
