This is to announce that a significant upgrade in the amount, quality, and
availability of tools for spreadsheet-like data analysis in Mathematica is
now available following this link:

Using SpreadsheetLook ( you can
import, view, edit, and manipulate data in spreadsheet-like or table form.
 The application (which is 100% developed in Mathematica and thus Windows
and Mac compatible) allows you to edit values, sort columns, filter data,
calculate new columns, take samples, etc.  This interface is designed to be
used as a data feed to your data-dependent application such that you can
easily import data from different sources and manipulate it with
SpreadsheetLook before proceeding to analyze it with your application.
 Additionally, there is data viewer (SpreadsheetViewMXL) which has similar
capabilities.  Both solutions are available for free; SpreadsheetLook has
limited capabilities in its trial version but a perpetual and full version
of SpreadsheetViewMXL is provided in the download.

Spreadsheet users may also want to take a look at BEST Viewpoints ( which
is a Mathematica application that provides analysis capabilities like pivot
tables, market basket analysis (or affinity analysis), statistical control
charts, and many other types of charts.
