#+TBLFM: address@hidden + @+0$1 - @+0$2
That's how the table looks like after
- creating the table
- filling columns 1 and 2 with numbers
- creating the column formula in column 3, and
- typing C-c * in @3$3 , @4$3 and address@hidden
The complete filling of the $3 column doesn't take place by issuing the commands in http://orgmode.org/org.html#Updating-the-table. If I go to @6$3 , @7$3 and @8$3 and type C-c * I obtain what I want, being:

#+TBLFM: address@hidden + @+0$1 - @+0$2
I know that what I'm asking should be of easy achievement on my own, but I got somewhat frustrated when I use the commands and the filling doesn't happen. Thanks for helping me.

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 ! :-)

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.
