Correct spelling, explanation: the correct spelling for this word is column from Latin columna. Probably the mistake
coloumn is connected with spelling of another word colour, however ou spelling only applies to the -our ending, so not for column.
Definition of column:
noun, in architecture a pillar to support or for decoration; a formation (in a row)
Columns in this palace are from 13th century.
Soldiers were standing in a column, looking dignified.
Incorrect spelling, explanation: this is an incorrect spelling, because the Latin original is columna, which points to spelling without o: column.
Coloumn is a misspelling, probably connected with spelling -our endings, such as for example colour.
