    I geuss I was not specific to ask things.

    My goal is set a value on 10th column that is calculated from 8th and 9th colum  when a spread sheet is loaded with data. This is about "Formula ". like this. (mycell.Formula = "SUM(A1:A2) * 2")

    This the way what I want to do.  I am waondering about how to get a value for 10th column with formula.

    8th column   9th column   10th column

    10                      7                   3
    20                      6                   14
    4                        1                    3

    If you want to set the Formula at column level, you may use the ColumnName followed by 1st row index to refer cell by reference. For example. to set the formula on 10th column that uses the values of 8th and 9th Column, you may use following code: 

            FpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Columns(10).Formula = "(I1 + J1)*2"

    the above code will set the formula for all the rows of 10th column using the respective rows of 9th and 8th Column
