I'm writing a short program that processes user-supplied financial data 
and finally plots the results.  I'd like to arrange it so the input is 
via a table that the user can see and edit, and to which cases can be 
added.  Is an extendable table possible?

Right now input is by way of

     CreateDialog -> Grid -> InputField

and this produces a mini-table, one per case.  As soon as all the input 
for that case is done, the table disappears and a dialog asks if there 
are more cases.  Instead of a temporary mini-table for each case, I'd 
like to have a single, persisting table to which I can add cases as 
needed.  The number of cases can't assumed to be known ahead of time.

I know Manipulate has a variable number of adjusters, but don't see how 
to apply this to my needs.

Any suggestions for doing something like this?  Thanks.
