Dear Carsten ,

Thanks ! That's exactly what I was in need of: a combination of a column-formula and relative references in the formula. So far, so good. Now, I have the formula line like this

#+TBLFM: address@hidden + @-0$3 - @-0$4

and the very line I typed the formula gets calculated fine. If I want another line into the bus, I go to the empty field in the same column in another line, and go to the Calculate menu, and choose recalculate line, and the fine result appears there , as expected. But if I approach Calculate / Recalculate all , in fact , nothing happens. I tried many times, without result. Recalc line works perfectly, but that does not seem what I'm looking for, which would be a recalculation of all the fields in the column that holds my column-formula.  I'll continue reading until I find out, but if you come up with an answer earlier I'd be grateful in advance !  :-)

best ,

Hi Haroldo,

You cannot copy a formula easily from one field t the next with
shifting the reference like you would do in a normal spreadsheet.
However, you can use relative references (see the manual) in
order to write formulas in an invariant way, and then use basic
editing commands in the C-c ' buffer to define the formula for
many fields.  Even better, use a column formula which allows
you to write a single formula for an entire column.

hi , I wonder how can a formula in a table be "copied" to a location below, and its references be shifted alongwise automatically. I checked every documentation I've found , but that "feature" does not show up. I'm forced to copy the formula in in the C-c '  and then go to each of the references and type S-downarrow as many times. I'd thank any idea here.

best regards, haroldo.
(thanks for org-mode, it's great)
