The syntax would be "=<A1>", I think.

I tried with formulas but didn't succeed. it seems that they treat
only numbers...

It seems so.

Breaking the principle of least surprise, it seems "tables" in Writer only do arithmetic.

any suggestion?

Yes: create what you need in a spreadsheet and copy and paste the
required cell range into your text document. It will appear as a table
but will function like the spreadsheet section that it is.

I trust this helps.

Or embed a spreadsheet object: Insert | Object | OLE Object and pick spreadsheet, then fill it in. Then you get most (all?) of the facilities you'd expect. Double-click to open the spreadsheet object for editing.

Referring back to my recent comments, this really should be the default action for anything table-like. IMO.
