without touching the others column width

You can do this using the keyboard. First go to Tools | Options... | Writer | Table | Keyboard handling | Behavior of
rows/columns and select Variable. To insert your column, first press
Alt+Insert to activate keyboard handling; then press right-arrow to
insert a column to the right. The cursor will now be in your new column;
press Alt+left-arrow or Alt+right-arrow to change the column width as
desired. You can set the original width of columns inserted this way at
Tools | Options... | Writer | Table | Keyboard handling |
Insert cell.

I trust this helps.

:-) many thanks again Brian, this helps a lot...>Tools>... =ok it was already in that way what do you intend to press Alt+Insert?? I clicked on Insert menu pressing Alt but it seems nothing happen, if I place cursor in the table a lower ribbon appear where is there an insert icon, pressing Alt and clicking on it nothing happens, but the keyoard handling should works becouse I can change columns width with Alt+left-arrow and right-arrow..
but..., I would like a behaviour like this:
...hoping to explain well..:-) :-)
when inserting column total table width has to change and single column width not. in Tools | Options... | Writer | Table | Keyboard handling | Insert cell I set column width to insert = 2cm
if my table is 10cm wide and has 3 columns of 4cm 3cm and 3cm
when I add a column the table should result 12cm wide and 4 columns of 4cm 3cm 3cm and 2cm.. practice like if I copy and paste a column..., that if I remember well was possible before and seems not now...:-)

:-) ciao :-) pier...
