I'm surprised that you didn't start this post with the phrase "this should be easy..."

Bad news, it's not. Excel has no facility for updating itself via a TCP/IP connection. I'm afraid your stuck using ASP or PHP for web data entry.

It's an interesting question though. Actually, I can see some possibilities like code in the spreadsheet that actually loads the data each time from a specialized server and then retransmits the data back on close. I could make it work but it would be easier to implement in ASP. It would only create the illusion that you were updating a spreadsheet.

I think you can use ColdFusion to link to your tables in Excel, which will update them, I could be wrong, but I know it works with Access tables.

Worst case, export data to Access, then link to Access.
