The column is used for both the name of the series and the number of the book within the series. To see how the information is displayed, select a book, press E to edit metadata for that book, then put something in both the series and the series index boxes. Press OK and you will see how the series column displays the information.

On a similar note I would like to have a column for the price I paid for the book. Creating the column is easy but again it's the formatting that is proving to be difficult.
What sort of formatting? I assume you created a floating point custom column. The dialog where you created the column has a format box where you can format to your heart's content. Holding your mouse over that box will show several examples including one of currency with a label "Price: $ {0:,.2f}".
