`I haven't used table formulas that much and I can't figure this one
``out. I'd like to include row numbers in the table itself.
``Something like this:
`
| Row | Data Column 1 | Data Column 2 |
|-----+----------------+---------------------|
| 1 | some data | more data |
| 2 | some more data | even more data |
|-----+----------------+---------------------|
| 3 | still more | yup, you guessed it |
| 4 | and more | that's all |

`I'd like to use a formula for the first column so that if I move
``rows around using org commands, the row numbers can be easily
``re-calculated. Note that I'd like numbering to continue
``sequentially across horizontal lines.
`

`I've tried column formulas like @-1+1, but the horizontal lines get
``in the way. And if every row needs it's own formula, it's hardly
``better than just filling in the numbers.
`
Can anyone suggest how to do this is a reasonably automated fashion?
Thanks,
Dan
