Yes, but refrain from using this "feature". It will only cause trouble sooner or later.

Instead, create a straight select query using the table as source and add calculated columns/fields as needed. Then use this query for your further processing.

Can you explain more , table structure , what calculated field you want to add. Are you using MS Access DB? Version?

Yes it is possible. But you can get calculated data at run time. Why to add to the DB?
