Hi Russel,

hmmm, an alternative would be to introduce a new property and do the computation in the properties. I can see that it would be relatively simple to define a TBLFM line that should be added to the table capturing the the column view, but if you need to add extra columns to the table, this makes things a lot harder.

I'd like to be able to use standard spreadsheet features in the same
table, specifically column formulas.

Right now it works, I can add an extra column and enter a column
formula. However when the table is refreshed in column mode, I lose
the spreadsheet data.

I see two fixes, either the TBLFM line is preserved, or could the
column formula be specified in the COLUMNS line?

Imagine a small table with two properties, VALUE and QUANTITY, where
TOTAL VALUE should be calculated via simple multiplication.
