Just an update to say I have managed to do one of the things I was

                                  (get-file-buffer view-file)
+  ;; do everything in a copy of the current buffer
+  (org-export-with-current-buffer-copy

               (setq nfields (length (car tbl)))
-            (org-columns-quit))))
