Subject: How to refer to remote table, in another file, as a source block variable?
Date: Fri, 7 Aug 2020 15:27:20 -0400 (EDT)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <alpine.DEB.2.02.2008071518410.16224@shell.miskatonic.org> (raw)

I can't figure this one out.  Let's say I have a table in an Org file, like so:

# -----

* Primes

#+NAME: test_table
| number | prime |
| two    | yes   |
| three  | yes   |
| four   | no    |

# -----

In another file, I want to bring this table into a source block as a variable. 
If it was the same file, I'd say ":var t=test_table" and that's that.  But 
what's the syntax for a different file?  I can't figure it out from the docs [1] 
and none of my attempts with quotes, file:, etc. work.  It's something like 
this, isn't it?  But what?

#+begin_src R :var t=(remote(table.org::*Primes))
