I still don't understand: in your most recent response (at the top of this 
you are talking about headlines with DEADLINE added (which seems the right 
to me: is there a problem with it?) But in your original mail, as well as in 
the followup, you are
taling about "field columns" and "vertical characters" and "cop[ying] down to 
another cell",
which seems to imply that you have an Org mode table somewhere.

Maybe you can elaborate a bit?
