Recalculation of a table is normally not automatic, but needs to be
triggered by a command. See Advanced features, for a way to make
recalculation at least semi-automatic.
In order to recalculate a line of a table or the entire table, use the
- C-c * (
Recalculate the current row by first applying the stored column formulas
from left to right, and all field/range formulas in the current row.
- C-u C-c *
- C-u C-c C-c
- Recompute the entire table, line by line. Any lines before the first
hline are left alone, assuming that these are part of the table header.
- C-u C-u C-c * or C-u C-u C-c C-c (
Iterate the table by recomputing it until no further changes occur.
This may be necessary if some computed fields use the value of other
fields that are computed later in the calculation sequence.
