I would like to create table where one column will be automatically fulfilled. Please find below

(Id int not null primary key,
Imie varchar(255),
kod_stanowiska varchar(255),
kod_zespolu varchar(255),
id_przelozonego varchar(255),
data_zatrudnienia datetime,
wynagrodzenie varchar(255),
lastmodification datetime DEFAULT getdate())

When I am trying add regords like:
insert into Users
(1,'Adrian','5','2','2','2012-06-30 23:59:59','5000')

There is the error message : 'Column name or number of supplied values does not match table definition'.
I do not understand why because the last column should be filled automatically by 'getdate'.

Could you help me where I am wrong.

Change the syntax to explicitly list the column names as shown below. Having a default value does not let you exclude the data for that column unless you explicitly list columns. Some other types of columns - identity columns, computed columns etc. would let you or may require you to do so, but not having a default value
insert into Users
(Id, Imie, kod_stanowiska, kod_zespolu,id_przelozoneg,data_zatrudnienia,wynagrodzenie)
(1,'Adrian','5','2','2','2012-06-30 23:59:59','5000')
