Entering data, spreadsheet-style

Hi

I would like to know if and how it would be possible to create an
entry-screen that allows the user to enter data in a database, using a
spreadsheet/table-like entry screen. The screen would start of having
headers for each column/field and an empty row underneath. When each column
in the row is filled in, the user must have an option to add another row.

I'm look for the code/explanation that helps me set up the entry screen, and
the ASP code to add the entered data in the database.

I can imagine that each entered row is added to the table when a new row is
added, or a button is pressed and then the screen refreshes with the newly
entered information and a new row...
Hope you can help!

I don't have a server that allows Office Web Components, so if there is
any other way of doing this, I would love to know.

yes - it is possible

Populate an HTML table from your RDBMS table.

<tr><th>colum n name</th> ... etc..
<tr><td>colum n data</td> ... etc.
<tr><td><inpu t type="..."...>< td> ... etc.

you will need to send your data to a script to update your database. there
are many trivial examples on the web.
I can imagine that each entered row is added to the table when a new
row is added, or a button is pressed and then the screen refreshes
with the newly entered information and a new row...
