Just an idea (especially given I havent touched Excel formulae for a v. long time):
Have you considered using (G)awk?

It could be possible to build up a list of arrays containing data and formulae and then perform as result in the end block.

It could get onerous to do and may be hackish/bespoke but Awk can be quite satisfying a tool.

Im sure somebody is sitting on a more correct approach however.
