I added a column in BOM chat, I renamed the column as ' Cost' by chosen 'custom property / cost ', but how to calculate the ' total cost'?

In any case to achieve a 'total cost' you will need to try the following:
Add a 'Cost' custom property to parts/assemblies as required. To do this follow these steps:
2016 SOLIDWORKS Help - Accessing Custom and Configuration Specific Properties
2016 SOLIDWORKS Help - Adding Custom Properties
(I included these since it sounds like you don't know how to do this?)
In your Assembly BoM or Drawing BoM, add a new column and select the custom property 'Cost' to be displayed in this column.
Add another new column which will be 'Total Cost'. Add an equation which is ='Cost' column * 'Quantity' column. This will give you total cost of the parts for the required quantity.
The table can be saved at this point to re-use in future assemblies/drawings.
Finally insert a row at the bottom, click the cell below Total Cost which is empty and select 'Equations', add a 'sum' and highlight all remainder of cells under Total Cost for which it will sum. This should give you all the desired costing information for your assembly.
Or maybe i should ask how to create the ' Total cost' column?As i understand that should go to the assembly component or single part file, then create it in 'property', exactly how, i m not so sure about it...
