Hi all,

Christopher Allan Webber was so gracious to share his personal org setup
for dieting, now I'm adapting his org-remember-template:

(setq org-capture-templates
      '(("w" "weigh-in" entry
	 (file+headline "~/.org/Diet.org" "diet")
* CAL-IN Diet for day %t 
| Food / Exercise | Calories | Quantity | Total |
| %^{Food}   |%^{Calories} |%^{Quantity} |     |
| Total           |          |          |       |
#+TBLFM: $4=$2*$3::$LR4=vsum(@2$4..@-I$4)

This works allright, this capture template is used once every day to
start the table (christopher: how does one do a CAL-OUT ?)
It creates a headline for every day with the table.
During the day the org file needs to stay opened so one can fill the
table with food/exercise items.
Now, I understand org-capture has more functionality than org-remember,
like a capture template that adds a line to a table, totally apt for
this situation:

("f" "food or exercise" table-line
(file+headline "~/.org/Diet.org" "diet")
"| %^{Food}   |%^{Calories} |%^{Quantity} |     |"
:table-line-pos "II-1" )

But I' having trouble getting the target right.
This works like a charm on an org file that just has a table, but I need
to figure out a way how to grab the last table (or better even, *todays*
table, if not there, will create one, but I guess this is for future)
Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to add a table line to
the last table in an org file. Or the table in the last child of
headline "diet" ?

help a noob out,plz.

tips are greatly appreciated,

thx wzzl
