Table fields are an unfinished feature at the moment, more fields  
than tables :-)
Nevertheless 'How to Manage Table Fields' tutorial might help you:
This stack, which comprises a Lab section and an Explanations  
section, explains table fields and all the aspects that for the  
moment are still not documented.
Fully commented scripts lets you start working with them at once.
You will access this tutorial through "Tutorials Picker" a free  
plugin that interfaces with the So Smart Software website in order to  
display all available tutorials stacks directly from the web.
You will find it by going to
Revolution/Plugins or Tutorials section.

Best regards from Paris,
