Subject: question on user-error reference leading out of table
Date: Mon, 29 Jun 2020 12:03:13 -0500 [thread overview]
Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> (raw)
I need some help understanding how to use org-mode/org-table for
references leading outside my table.
I have a series of daily figures, and I am computing the series of
running sums. column one is the daily data, column two is the running
sum of the preceding 14 values from column 1.
problem is the @-13$1 reference in the function for the second column:
it hits a software-generated "user-error: Row descriptor -13 leads
this happens even if the formula says (if (> @# 13) (apply '+
'(@-13$1..$1)) 0), that is, even if the formula is not evaluated on the
cells where the reference does indeed lead out of the table.
this happens around line 2809 of org-table.el, inside org-table--row-type
I've tried to catch the user-error with a `condition-case', but even
there, the error seems to happen before evaluation.
I've replaced the `(user-error)' function with a `nil', and it works for
me, but that's a very rough measure I'm afraid.
