recently I encountered a bug with capturing table lines. Here is a ECM
to reproduce it:

- org-mode file (testing.org):
#+begin_src org
* Headline
|   | Name | Amount |
|   |      |        |
#+TBLFM: @2$3=vsum(@address@hidden);%.2f

- settings (init-file)
#+begin_src emacs-lisp
;; path settings for git repo
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/git-emacs/org-mode/contrib/lisp")
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/git-emacs/org-mode/contrib/babel/lisp")
;;; add org-mode/lisp as last
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/git-emacs/org-mode/lisp")

(require 'org)
(require 'org-capture)

(setq org-capture-templates
      '(("t" "testing" table-line (file+headline 
"~/Dropbox/emacs-testing/19-01-16-capture-table-line/testing.org" "Headline")
         "|#| |%^{amount}|" :table-line-pos "III-1" :immediate-finish t)))

I start emacs as follows:

: emacs -Q -l init-file.el --find-file testing.org

When I evaluate capture template I get following result:

#+begin_src org
* Headline
|   | Name | Amount |
| # |      |  33.00 |

|   |   |   |
#+TBLFM: @2$3=vsum(@address@hidden);%.2f

First there is an empty line which breaks the table in two and secondly
the formula is not updated. This also happens when I delete the empty
line, correct formula and evaluate org-capture again.

With git-bisect I found that

    org-capture: Fix off-by-one error
    * lisp/org-capture.el (org-capture-place-table-line): Fix narrowing.

produces the error.

Thank you for looking into this.

Bis neulich ...
