I use below code to calculate the difference between two columns from remote tables but the output is all zero!

#+name: tbl1
| x |
| 1 | 
| 2 | 
| 3 |

#+name: tbl2
| y |
| 1 |
| 1 |
| 1 |

#+name: tbl3
| diff |
|    0 |
|    0 |
|    0 |
#+TBLFM: @2$1..@>$1=remote(tbl1,$1) - remote(tbl2,$1)

    refer to orgmode manual orgmode.org/org.html, search remote(FOO, @@#$1) to see details – lucky1928 Jan 31 at 18:10
  • This seems to indicate that you solved your problem. If so, you should write an answer for it (and note that you can accept your own answer, thereby indicating to future visitors that the problem is solved). BTW, here's a more exact link to the documentation. – NickD Jan 31 at 20:51
