Hi Tom,

The following example might work, it uses an emacs-lisp code block to
wrap any number of tables into a single list of tables which could then
be passed to R.

#+data: table-names
- first-table
- second-table
- third-table

#+data: first-table
| a | 1 |
| b | 2 |

#+data: second-table
| c | 3 |
| d | 4 |

#+data: third-table
| e | 5 |
| f | 6 |

#+begin_src emacs-lisp :var table-names=table-names
  (mapcar #'org-babel-ref-resolve table-names)

| (a 1) | (b 2) |
| (c 3) | (d 4) |
| (e 5) | (f 6) |
