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.

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