[texhax] Modifying LaTeX tables

Hello all,

I have a general methodology question concerning tables in LaTeX and I was
just wondering what the collective wisdom of the list thought.

Currently I am making tables using a spreadsheet then saving the file as a
.csv file, replacing commas with an ampersand and then formatting the table
to include in a .tex file. The problem I am running into is that if I want
to modify the table after this process (say add a column) I have to start
from scratch at the spreadsheet level which can be fairly time consuming. I
just wondering what other people do to make this more efficient. That is,
how do people go about making tables and modifying then after some edits
have been made.

Anyways, thanks in advance!
