I can second this advice. However if you feel delving into org-mode at
this moment might be a little time consuming for you, you can try only
the org radio tables feature[1]. It is surprisingly simple to use. For
basic table manipulation key bindings look at this link[2]. You will
need to turn on the orgtbl-mode for this to work in latex buffers.
