Users of the R system have the xtable function in the xtable
package, which works like a charm.  Supply the table, and
it spits out the LaTeX code.

There is a simple editor that gives a somewhat spreadsheet-
like ability to edit R objects, including tables.  There is also
an interface to Excel if you want to go that route.

Note also the abilities in the Hmisc package.

For R, go to http://cran.r-project.org
