create org mode tables from a recutils file
Jose Marchesi created and maintains GNU Recutils which "is a set of tools and libraries to access human-editable, plain text databases called recfiles." https://www.gnu.org/software/recutils/
git clone git://git.sv.gnu.org/recutils.git
The GNU Recutils package includes a command-line interface, an emacs rec-mode for creating and editing recfiles and ob-rec.el by which those recfiles are read into a table in org-mode.
INSTALLATION VERSE PLACEMENT AND ORG-BABEL-LOAD LANGUAGE
In your init.el file the installation verse (see rec-mode info) should be placed before org-babel-do-load-languages.
Within org-babel-load languages evaluation of rec code blocks is enabled with
(rec . t)
ob-rec.el DESCRIPTION AND DISCUSSION
See Jose's and Eric Shulte's thread at Emacs-orgmode https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2011-02/msg00814.html or at gmane http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/37697/focus=37750
A recfile can contain different types of records and each record type has field lables and corresponding values. ob-rec.el then can used to create a table which may be exported to a LaTeXpdf document for instance. A document template in org-mode format can be used to generates separate reports from corresponding recfiles.
