I'm using SharePoint 2007, Custom list.

I have created calculate column. in order to configure this column I need to insert the column name and to create a formula.

Is it possible to write a range of column that need to be included the formula?

etc: =SUM(the last 4 column from the current list from right to left)

instead of: =SUM([June],[July],[August],[September])

No, you can't give like that. In SharePoint calculated column, we have to give individual column name to get the sum of all column values.
