Yesterday I wrote about Finding Org Headers And Links and gave some Elisp functions to aid in searching for them. Today, my bank statement came and I entered information from the statement into my Org tax file. The tax file has several headings and subheadings for various kinds of data. Typically, the subheadings contain an Org table with information on expenses such as the date, check number, expense, and amount.
That gave me a chance to use the
find-all-org-headers function. I called the function and the frame split with an
*Occur* buffer opened in the other window. The focus was in the
*Occur* buffer so I did a 【Ctrl+s】 to search for the proper subheading for the first expense, hit 【Return】 and I was popped right into the tax buffer at the proper place. I typed 【Tab】 to expand the heading, entered the data in the table, and then typed 【Ctrl+x o】 to return to the
*Occur* buffer and repeat the process for the next expense. It was much quicker than my old method of hunting around in the tax file by hand.
