```Unfortunately, this is beyond the current syntax
envelope for table equations in org-mode.

I could widen that envelope, but not soon.

Hello all--

```
I'm looking for help in setting up a calculation in a table in org mode.
``` I'd like to keep a running average of my past three days worth of
measurements.  Something like

|------------------+-----------------+-----------------|
| Date             | TV Time (hours) | Running Average |
|------------------+-----------------+-----------------|
| <2006-06-24 Sat> |               1 |                 |
| <2006-06-25 Sun> |             1.5 |                 |
| <2006-06-26 Mon> |              .5 |               1 |
| <2006-06-27 Tue> |               3 |            1.66 |
| <2006-06-28 Wed> |             2.5 |               2 |
|------------------+-----------------+-----------------|

I just did the numbers for running average in my head-- I'm hoping for
help with a formula that will get the mean for the last three rows of
the `TV Time' column.  I tried using \$3=vsum(\$2&3-1), but this didn't
work.

Is there a syntax for accessing row ranges of other columns for a
calculation?  If not, can anyone suggest an elisp formula that will
accomplish this?

```
If a helpful soul is feeling especially generous, is there also a way to set this table up that will calculate the new running average every time
```I enter a new date's measurement?  Extra credit if you use Carsten's
constants.el to provide units in the measurment column and the
calculated column ;)

Thanks for any help,
