Hi,
I would like to use the column number in a view in a formula.
Example : If a record is listed as 5th is a view, I would like to use the number 5 in a formula.
Is there an internal field giving me this number ?

PS If this exists, is there a list of internal fields that can be used ? like RECORD_ID, …

No, formulas cannot access the row number of a record. A record could be in different rows in different views. The same goes for field order. Fields can be in different positions in different views.

You can see all the ‘internal fields’ in the formula field reference under the ‘Record functions’ heading. There aren’t many.
